Homemade weed killer

Many of us wish to kill the weeds that grow in our gravel driveway, yet don't want to risk polluting our wells or the lake with commercially available chemical weed killers.

If you search the internet for homemade weed killers, you will find many variations of this simple recipe:

1 cup salt
