Baking soda can also be used to kill weeds “effectively”.
The experts explained: “Simple household baking soda may be all you need for your weed problems, especially if you want to kill weeds growing near decorative plants you’d like to keep.
“Baking soda is a natural product that will not contaminate your property or landscaping and is safe for the environment.”
Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, works by overloading the weed with salt.
This then causes the weeds to dry out to the roots and die.
