Personally I am too busy to sepnd time on weed eraditication, but since my neighbors come back every year for more, I imagine it works for them on some weeds. Vinegar from the grocery store is about 5% acidity, and that is not what I am referring to. This is strong stuff! My tomatoes are certified organic, so this vinegar we use is acceptable to USDA organic standards. I also give my neighbors a liitle yucca extract to add as a surfactant, but I can't imagine that it is all that necessary.

I was just going to ask that. It can be had cheap at Walmart and even cheaper at Sams. I was wondering if it would kill 
poison ivy.
