Do It Yourself Weed Killer

DIY weed killer. 3 gallons for around $4.00. Supposedly works as good as the store bought stuff, but I haven’t tried it yet. If anyone does this, let me know the results!

1 gallon apple cider vinegar
1/2 c table salt
1 tsp. Dawn
Mix and pour into a spray bottle and start spraying.

Home tip: how to locate a stud

Locate a Stud

Start at a corner, where there’s always a stud. Or take the cover plate off an electrical outlet and find out on which side it’s mounted to the stud. From there, measure 16, 32, 48 inches, and you should hit a stud at each go. Eliminate all guesswork by using a thin bit to drill a test hole at the top of the base molding, which you can easily repair with a dab of caulk.
