Kill Dandelions with Salt - Video

 

Summary: Although the little yellow dandelions are pretty, you're going to want to eventually get rid of them, because they are a breeding ground for couch grass.

The following is the transcript of the video:

The best home ingredient for getting rid of dandelions is salt. Destroys the root and it stops it from spreading.

The best way to do this is to get a tablespoon of salt and sprinkle it around the root. Now make sure that you do this on a day when there is no chance of rain, and you do it on dry soil. One word of caution is to not make the circle too big, because it will kill other plants and grass.

Now, this may take a couple of days to kill the dandelion. So you might have to reapply the salt a few times, but it is the only way to kill a dandelion for good.
