Can you kill lawn weeds with white vinegar? A friend told me that you can kill lawn weeds by spraying vinegar. Is it true, and if so, at what percentage of vinegar and water?

This is true, but the type of vinegar you buy at the store is not strong enough to kill the weeds in one application. You will need to apply it several times without diluting it with water.

Vinegar is a full spectrum weed killer, meaning it will kill or harm any plant that it is applied to.
