I am trying a commercial grade vinegar.
It is many times stronger and is safe for kids & pets.
It is none selective so use the same precautions as Round-Up.
The only draw back is on tough weeds you may have to reapply up to 3 times.

No it is not! Would you seriously spray that on kids and pets? The residual is safe-ish, BUT it is called acetic ACID.

Roundup tank mixed with Sureguard. Sureguard makes Roundup work alot quicker. You can use this mix in ornamental beds around mature woody ornamentals. Sureguard is both a pre and post. Valet makes Sureguard. Take a look at the label. I'm happy with it so far....

That would be real safe seeing how the LD50 of vinegar is twice what round up is.
