How To Get Rid of Poison Ivy - Kill Poison Ivy
I'm seriously allergic to poison ivy. Even though there are plenty of remedies and treatments for poison ivy, prevention is a much more comfortable experience than the rash from being exposed to the oil of the plant. I recently found and tried a somewhat environmentally friendly way to kill poison ivy dead in its tracks and it works like a charm. Poison ivy can be killed with commercial herbicides, but using the least harmful chemicals possible will keep them from entering our soil and water supply. Whatever treatment you use to kill poison ivy, remember to take safety precautions while spraying to keep from being exposed to the oil of the poison ivy plant.
Kill Poison Ivy Plant Treatment
1 Gallon of Vinegar
1 Cup of Salt
A few drops of dish soap (dawn, joy, etc.)
Mix the Vinegar and Salt in a pot and boil until the salt is dissolved completely. Let cool. Add the few drops of dish soap and mix well. Pour into container and label for safety. Pour plant killer into a spray bottle. Spray the poison ivy leaves with the mixture. May require more than one application to get rid of poison ivy.
