This product is a vinegar product with 75% concentration acetic acid. This product is 15x stronger than household vinegar and should NOT be used on food (not intended for human consumption).
For complete kill and non-reemergence use the following formula:
- Mix one quart of 75% vinegar
- Fill with water to 2 gallons in a hand sprayer (this makes 10% concentration for immature or non-established weeds)
- Fill with water to 1 gallon in a hand sprayer (this makes 20% concentration for mature and established weeds)
- Add 1 cup of salt (do not use epsom salt) (recommend table salt)
- Add 1 tablespoon of dishsoap (Palmolive Lemon Dish Soap seems to work best)
DANGER: This product causes severe skin burns and eye damage. Protective equipment is highly recommended (gloves and safety goggles). If using this product at high concentrations, a respirator may be required as well.
- Higher efficiency is achieved by using on younger weeds, and mature weeds should use this product at a 1:3 ratio (makes one full gallon of 20%).
- The best time of day to apply this product is during full sunlight when temperatures will remain above 65°F.
- Application should be done on dry plants, so no rain in last 24 hours and no rain expected in the next 24 hours. *Reminder to turn off sprinklers.*
- Completely spray the desired plant, covering all leaves, stalks and branches.
- This type of application includes pre-plant, pre-harvest desiccation and post-harvest desiccation.
- Dilute at a ratio of 3 gallons of water to 1 gallon of product.
- Apply at 15-30 gallons total solution per acre. Mature and dense weeds may require more volume rather than higher concentration.
- Spot testing application may provide better insight into the amount of coverage required.
- Use flat fan nozzles at pressures less than 35psi.
- For use within a growing crop use hoods or shielding equipment to keep the spray inside the desired areas and prevent harm to crop.
- When applying for pre-plant burning a 110° nozzle can be used to allow closer spray application and higher coverage rates.
This product is produced in the United States.
Use one full quart container to make 1 gallon of weed killer. Be sure to completely wet the target plants. The concentration is now approximately 20% strength.
This can be used to clean painted walls and a 1:4 ratio is recommended. If there are tough spots you may need to increase the dilution ratio.
