Note: Herbicide is not a selective weed killer. It will kill any plant it touches so be very careful how you use it.

Equipment

What to do

  • 1. Add a cup of salt to a litre of vinegar in a bucket.

  • 2. Stir.

  • 3. After it has dissolved, use the funnel to pour the solution into the wide-mouthed jar.

  • 4. Make a label and stick it to the jar with name, purpose, date and instructions.

  • 5. To use: brush the herbicide directly onto weeds with an old pastry brush or paint brush.
