Try your local Tractor Supply Company store, if you have one. Ask the
people there which would be best for your particular application. I am
using one that has the same ingredient as RoundUp, but in a slightly
higher concentration than the name brand, and much less expensive.
Takes four days to over a week to kill, depending on the "weed." The
slowest for me are the baby oaks.
Protect your civil rights!
Let the politicians know how you feel.
How long did you wait for the product to work? It should take at
least a week before you see results. Are you attempting to kill weeds
in your lawn or are you dealing with weeds in a non-grassy area?
If you are trying to kill weeds and not preserve grass, try Round-up
(glyphosphate), this is a systemic product and must be sprayed on the
leaves of the weeds, additionally, it doesn't work too well on weeds
over 12" tall. Be aware, Round-up will kill grass.
What are you trying to kill and where? The weeds on my stone driveway
turned up their toes within hours after application of a mix of 1
liter white vinegar, 1/2 cup epson salt, and a few tsp of dawn
dishwashing liquid. A lot cheaper than using cider vinegar and epsom
salts - and just as effective (I tried both)
Have any idea where in Walmart I'd find epson salts? Health stuff?
Cleaning? Somewhere else? I've not seen them when looking for other
Another question. How do you put this on the weeds? Put in an old spray
bottle? Other method?

Yes, pharmacy section.
That depends on what size area. For the very smallest of spaces,
an old spray bottle works, but remember to re-label it. For larger
areas, one of the 2 gallon pump sprayers works, that is the smallest
reasonable solution IMO, ~$20 For bigger areas, a 3 gal pump backpack
sprayer with a wide tip nozzle is the way to go. ~$75
I bought something online for a weed that I have for recommended
pre-emergent treatment needed is not available in any store around me:
Free shipping and cheaper than Amazon that wanted me to pay shipping.

I use Roundup and it kills anything I spray it on. I bought a
quart bottle of it last week at Walmart for $18.76 (I think it
76¢, I do know it was under $19.00). A $5 off coupon was used,
too. Anyway, This is the stuff you mix yourself and put in a
garden sprayer. I do add about a tablespoon more than the
recommended amount and I see no grass or weeds until the next

I use this, bought from Amazon. Use it in driveway/sidewalk cracks and a brick walkway.

Though it kills everything, they get reseeded every year. Weeds do that.
Have to use it once a year.

You can't just say Roundup and not specify what it actually is. There
are very different types of Roundup product. As pointed out, when
people just say Roundup, they almost always mean the glyphosate product,
which Monsanto is most famous for. That you can spray, kill weeds,
and re-seed in just a few days, which is what you want when you're
re-seeding a lawn from scratch or hitting some weeds in an area
you're going to plant flower seeds. Then they have other products,
totally different chemical, which will prevent anything from germinating
or growing for months. If you used that "Roundup" on a lawn renovation,
or where you are planting flowers, it would be a disaster. you'd have
no lawn, no flowers for a year and waste a lot of money.
