How to Kill Poison Ivy in One Day- Without Poisonous Chemicals

Poison Ivy can be a real problem in your garden, in you lawn or in the woods where the plants or your animals could get it’s oils on you. Here is a cheap and …


  1. I will test your method today, but I will be spraying most of my poison ivy with the Roundup formulated specifically for Poison Ivy and brush. I will take some pictures and shoot some video to compare the two different methods.

  2. My approach is to locate the plants and digging the roots.  The poison ivy vine can be 2 in. in thickness when growing up a tree.  I begin following the beast below ground.  It can go 20 ft. or more but not very deep.  This type of killing I enjoy.  Arms, hands legs need to be covered.

  3. When I was a teenager I got a dose of poison ivy that would make a grown man cry…A friend of the family, an elderly native American stoically told me…"Jerry, if you eat some of it now you will never get it again.." I was in no mood so I politely declined…He later told me that he was not joking and in fact ingesting it would nearly permanently cure me of future incidents…Anyone else hear of this?

  4. This one works.

    Another technique to try if manual labor's not your thing: Dissolve 1 cup of salt in 1 gallon of water and add in 1 tablespoon of dish soap. Mix well, pour into a water sprayer, and spray away. Spraying this mixture will kill all plant growth it comes into contact with, so be sure you're spraying only the poison ivy.Jun 25, 2013

    I used Seventh Generation dish soap but any dish soap should do.

  5. Naw, argue all you want but if you did kill a bunch of that nasty plant, you haven't shown it here. What you've shown is a few brown leaves and tons of nasty plant still waiting to ruin your day.

  6. Next year after vinegar treatment , poison ivy came back thriving even better, because good plants got completely killed. I tried vinegar again, and again, poison ivy thrived even better…

  7. I use it without water on my back yard, it won't kill the dogs or cats,Mine don't like the smell, just use the 2% you get at the store and add dish soap to make it stick on leafs,it does not kill the roots bit then again it won't kill your pets,and it's a whole lot easier then useing the weed eater ever couple of weeks all summer long
