    Not that everyone does not know already, but if you apply vinegar as an herbicide you have to have an applicators liscence. Remember it is not labeled for intended use as a herbicide. This is according to RI's Department of Enviromental Management.

    Try using 1 gallon white vinegar, 8oz table salt, 8 oz dish soap.

    This will kill the whole weed if enough is applied applied. The soap acts like a surfactant so the plant will absorb it more readliy. This will work better than just vinegar. I use it on patios/ walkways and even when I 'm doing a lawn renovation, just do it about a week ahead of time and the salt should be flushed out of the soil.
