Yet another use for white vinegar. Pour some on your pesky weeds, give them about a week and watch them dry up, turn brown and whither away.
I poured white vinegar on some of the weeds that always grow in-between the bricks on my patio. A few days later, look at the difference. The one with vinegar is drying up. Once they’re dry, they’re easy to pull up.

I’m hesitant to use this method on weeds that are mixed in with viable grass. It might kill the surrounding grass as does the chemical products sold in home supply stores. Who knows, maybe I’ll try it on an inconspicuous portion of the lawn and report my findings.
In the meanwhile, I’m thrilled to be able to use a natural product to remove the weeds from the patio.
One word of advice…use a funnel or something that will aim the vinegar to just the right spot. I attempted to pour it straight from the bottle into the cracks of the patio and got more on the bricks than the cracks.
