I've had good results killing other weeds with white
vinegar, applied straight (from a watering can). I usually
have to do it a couple of times.
I wonder if vinegar would work on poison ivy?
We don't seem to have any poison ivy in this area
(Appalachian Mountains in northern Pennsylvania). It
surprised me, but I have not seen any in four years of
living here and I recognize it when I see it.
I can only assume the winters are too cold for it (the
lowest temperature we've experienced here is -26 F).
Anyway, it doesn't seem to be here.
