Most of us can agree that weeds are a bit of a nuisance, especially if they're growing in our yards and gardens. Not only are they unattractive, but they also steal water, sun, and nutrients from the plants you're actually trying to grow. The problem? Most store-bought weed killers contain chemicals and toxins. Although effective, these weed killers can contaminate your drinking water, threaten your pets and wildlife, and harm your family's health. 

Thankfully, there are natural, at-home remedies for killing weeds that don't cause the same harms as herbicides. So, next time you're looking to clean up the yard, don't reach for the Roundup — try these solutions instead.
