    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.

    But doesn't that yellow tint stain on concrete/brick/pavers?

    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....

    Gasoline is a bargain at only $3.75 a gallon. :)

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