Hi, I'm Holly Hirshberg from and I'm going to be making a week killer using vinegar and dish soap. This is going to be a great weed killer. I can spray this right in my yard on dandelions, or anything that's kind of invasive in there without using the harsh chemicals. This one is going to be, you can spray this right in your garden, it will kill the grass and things around your weeds so be kind of careful to concentrate it right on your weed. But you'll be able to grow stuff in the places you use this. About a cup of white vinegar and then I'm going to use about a teaspoon of dish soap. The white vinegar is what's going to kill the leaves, the dish soap, what that's going to do is it's going to strip the waxy coating off the leaves which will then cause them to dehydrate and die faster. Put that in there, my top on. And this, you don't want to shake it vigorously because its going to get all foamy and then you'll have to wait until all the foam goes away to use it. I'm just going to swirl it a little bit. And as with any product that you're making for you're yard, inn a spray bottle I'm going to label. So now I want to put all the ingredients on it. I'm going to do vinegar, and dish soap, weed kill. Obviously if you're spraying it in a large area you can adjust the recipe accordingly. I'm going to label it, then I can go spray my weeds
