Use Recommendations

Use Acetic Acid 75% Food Grade as industry required. 

Acetic Acid is commonly used as an all-natural weed killer and is understood to be the best off the shelf alternative to herbicides such as glyphosate. Acetic Acid when diluted to 20% has been shown to be the optimum strength (when cost is considered) to control crabgrass, broadleaf plantain and annual weeds. At 20% strength there is virtually no re-growth for up to 13 weeks. Levels of 5% Acetic (which are sold at supermarkets) provide only short-term control of most perennial weeds and suffer from high instances of regrowth. To make a 20% solution use 2 litres of 75% Acetic and add 5L of water. This solution can be then sprayed as your would normally do as a replacement for Glyphosate. All acetic acid treatments of 20% (or higher) quickly caused a dramatic discoloration and browning of foliage on all plant species tested. In a few hours, the foliage will became blackened and water-soaked. After 24 hours, control in all plots with an acetic acid product was 99.9%

Product FAQs

Is Acetic Acid flammable?

Yes, acetic acid is flammable above 80% that is why we sell 75%

How much stronger is Acetic Acid than Vinegar from the supermarket?

White vinegar is typically a 4% solution of Acetic Acid so Acetic Acid 75% is ~19 times stronger but certainly not 19 times the price
