Need to spray weeds but worry about harming the plants around them? Cut the top (above the handle) and the bottom out of a gallon milk jug. Put the jug over the weed and spray into the milk jug from the top.

Disappointed as bags were wadded and jumbled inside box. Bags would not come out of box without ripping the entire box open, so I put them together as the other brand does and then folded the entire pile into a neat "roll" with the tops up for easy extraction. This line needs better QC! 24
Icy Cold Hydration That Stays Cold Longer Without Coolers or Bags of Ice
Fill various sized bottles and jugs half full of water. Place bottles (not gallon jugs) so that they lean (keep stable) to one side while freezing (without lids). Keep gallon jugs upright (also no lids). When ready to use fill with fresh water and screw lids on snuggly and you're all set to go!
Depending on whether you're using at home or on various length trips you have an icy cold drink that stays colder than fast melting ice cubes. The angle results in greater surface area of ice and the thinner top of ice on one side melts a little faster to provide additonal drinking water over time!
Vinegar when sprayed or poured onto weeds will prevent the weed from absorbing water, thus killing it. My dad told me this, and he is a professional gardner. Watchout, it does kill everything, even grass. So, just put it on what you want to get rid of. Much cheaper than those $99 bottles of killer. Vinegar has sooo many uses! :)
