Default vinegar for weeds?

i was just surprised to read in the smh you can spray weeds with white
vinegar, (to kill them, not to make them taste better ;-)

surprised, because i haven't ever heard such a thing!!!

has anyone tried this?


Yes, I've tried it. It was a waste of vinegar.
Nothing died. Spraying with tap water would have
been of equal effectiveness. I don't know how these
myths manage to get perpetuated.

BTW, sheep love sheep sorrel. And dandelion flowers. And
ivy (carcinogenic to stock). :-(

I think you must have sprayed to theleft instead of the right.

Try it the other way, it does work, at least here in the West...
