But the recipe worked [clappy] i mixed the solution (vinegar,salt and dish soap)poured it on the area that i needed and left the solution on for about a week and half and the grass and weeds died [thumb] .I now have a beautiful garden planted in the spot now [flower] . Thank-u ever so much for everyones help. [kissies]

HI [wayey] that recipe came from Duckie.she gave it to me a good while back.i have recomended it quite a few times.Duckie said i was giveing her willys because i recameded round up a lot [Big Grin] .SO the thanks should go to Duckie.shes a great all natural organtic gardener [thumb] heres the recipie
Poison Ivy Vegetation Killer
1 cup salt
8 drops liquid detergent
1 gallon vinegar

Combine the salt and vinegar in a pan and heat to dissolve the salt. Cool the vinegar, add the detergent, and pour some of the liquid into a large spray bottle. Spray the vegetation. (You can also just pour the mixture onto the weeds.) Refill the spray bottle as necessary. Note that this formula will kill all the vegetation, so make sure that you are only spraying the plants you want to kill. If you need to use a lot of this spray, avoid spraying it near wells, as the salt can leach into your water supply.

I have poison ivy mixed in with my English Ivy. If I use the solution on the two ivies, will it kill both, or just the poison??

It will kill both. You're choices are to either kill everything and start over, pull the poison ivy plant by plant or use something like Vine-X that you apply only to the individual poison ivy stems. http://www.vine-x.com/
