I am anxious to try this, I could not work in my garden much last year and the weeds took advantage of that. I usually dig them out but spraying sounds much easier.

Does this kill the grass? Trying to get rid of crab grass but not my entire lawn. Also, if I did this to kill weeds how long should I wait to either seed grass or lay sod?

Not if the provided method is done correctly. Read the full article. Follow all weed killing steps.
NOTE: Make sure to NOT over spray a large amount of the homemade weed killer on the actual plants that you want to keep alive. If a small amount gets on the plants you want to keep alive there will not be any harmful affects. Use a common sense approach and you will have no problems.

I’m interested in using alterantives to store bought chemicals. This weed killing recipe sounds interesting. I’ll give it a shot, thanks for sharing it.
