I tried using salt and vinegar, and both mixed to kill some weeds. They haven’t gone anywhere. It’s been 5 days. What gives?Thanks!

This may be dependent on the type of weed (those with long tap roots will be more difficult to eradicate) and outdoor temps (generally need fairly warm temps to work well). You may also need to reapply these until they take effect. Boiling water will typically kill anything it comes into contact with, regardless.
