The Daily Express has shared a gardening expert’s tip on how to combat overgrown weeds in your garden with a simple three-ingredient weedkiller hack.

With a mixture of vinegar, Epsom salt, and dish soap, you can dry out weeds in a matter of hours.

The hack was first shared on a Reddit thread dedicated to weed control.

“It will kill anything you spray it on,” wrote one user.

“Just mix and spray in the morning after the dew has evaporated.”

Another commenter mentioned a “similar method,” saying, “Once the grass was sprayed, I didn’t notice it growing back.”

A third comment said: “Sunny, warm days are the best days to use this blend.”

“After a few hours, the weeds are noticeably attacked, the leaves are shriveled and discolored.”

Vinegar’s high acidity dehydrates the weed, making it dry and crunchy.

The dish soap breaks down the outer covering of the plant, allowing the vinegar to work its magic.

Epsom salt contains a high concentration of magnesium sulfate, which prevents plants from absorbing essential nutrients like calcium.

Be careful when using this mix on your plants as vinegar can kill your plants while Epsom salt can have a negative effect on the soil.
