Natural Weed Control with Baking Soda: A Handy Guide

Baking soda is an effective, natural weed killer that kills small weeds and controls powdery mildew.

It's non-selective, so use it carefully around desired plants and grass

Salt in baking soda dehydrates weeds, causing them to die permanently.

Apply by sprinkling directly on wet weeds or spraying a baking soda solution (1 tbsp per gallon)

Choose a sunny day for application to prevent washing away.

Vinegar, boiling water, and smothering are other natural weed control methods.

Hand-pulling and using salt are additional economical options.

Follow these tips for safe, affordable, and environmentally friendly weed management.
