If you have too many weeds growing in your yard, you might want to give this a try. It will take way less time than pulling each weed individually.

Weeds are Popping up in Indiana Yards

It's that time of year when you have to bust out the ole lawnmower and start making your yard look pretty again. I actually mowed my yard for the first time this year yesterday. One thing that can be an eyesore in your yard is weeds, and I noticed one too many in my yard.

We all know the drill, you can either mow or weed eat them or you can bend over and pull them from the ground. However, they will just grow back after mowing over them and you're going to have a bit of a sore back from bending over and pulling them over and over again. Now, you could always go to the store and buy weed killer. That could be pricey depending on how big your yard is. Not to mention, sometimes that weed killer doesn't even do the trick. However, you could try out this DIY weed killer with things that you most likely already have in your kitchen.

How To Make A DIY Weed Killer

I saw a post that has gone viral from Waddell Woodworking LLC, that could prove to be very useful to you when it comes to weeds. The post shows you how to make a DIY weed killer out of items that you probably already have at home. For this, you only need three simple ingredients: Dawn Dish Soap, salt, and white vinegar. The post says that you will want to get a spray bottle and put this mix into it:

  • 1 gallon of white vinegar
  • 1 cup of table salt
  • 1tbsp of liquid Dawn Dish Soap
