Before you use salt, hot water, or organic vinegar to kill dandelions in your lawn and garden, allow three days of not mowing your lawn before you apply the herbicides. This gives time for the dandelions to be completely visible in your property, which makes it easier to spot them when you process the application of your chosen herbicide. After the application, give another three days before you start mowing in order to give enough time for the herbicide to seep deep into the roots and ultimately killing the dandelions.
When using slat, hot water, and organic vinegar in killing dandelions, you can use a durable sprayer to complete the job. Always make it a point to wear protective gears when applying the organic techniques to get rid of dandelions. Wear protective gloves, eye masks, and overalls in order to prevent hot water to scorch any part of your body, or to make sure that vinegar will not come in contact to your eyes, or to ensure that salt will not hurt your hands or feet.
If you prefer to pull the dandelions from the soil first before you apply hot water, salt, or organic vinegar to the ground, use the proper dandelion puller tool in order to guarantee that you’re completely pulling the roots successfully, and then pour your selected herbicide into the soil. This process may take longer to finish, but it is extremely effective.
Remember to always apply the salt, hot water, or organic vinegar only when there is no chance that rain water or sprinkler water can obstruct the killing process. If in case that it rains after your applied your organic methods, simply repeat the whole application process again. You can do this on your own, or you can ask for a professional and expert assistance from a local lawn and garden service company.
