Frequently Asked Questions

What is WeedKleen?
WeedKleen is a Non-Selective weed control product that is made from a proprietary mixture of Acetic Acid and Citric Acid (components of Vinegar and Lemon Juice). WeedKleen is an environmentally friendly product and has no lasting impact on the surrounding areas. It is quickly biodegradable and provides an excellent alternative to chemical herbicides.

Is WeedKleen a registered product?
No, WeedKleen™ has not been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. EcoSaveEarth, Inc. represents that this product qualifies for exemption from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.

How much WeedKleen do I spray on an area?
Only plant surfaces that come into contact with the product will be controlled. Therefore, it is essential to spray until weed is fully covered. To achieve knockdown it is recommended that you spray the weed to the point of run-off. This is especially important the first time you spray a new area. Being thorough during the initial application will reduce your chances of re-treatment being required.

When do I spray WeedKleen?
The best results are achieved when WeedKleen is sprayed early in the season on young and growing weeds. Spraying for full coverage during the first application of the season reduces the necessity for re-treatment. Spray on days that are warm and dry.  Moderate temperature usually provide the best conditions for application.

Where do I apply WeedKleen?
WeedKleen is non-selective weed control and will knock down all foliage it contacts. WeedKleen is best used on areas such as: walkways, shrub-beds, tree-rings, sidewalks, driveways, patios, railroad rights-of-way, power stations, industrial sites, around farm buildings, storage areas, tank farms, greenhouses, plant nurseries, golf courses, fence lines and vacant lots.

Does WeedKleen work on Broadleaf and Grassy Weeds?
WeedKleen is non-selective, it works on both broadleaf and grassy weeds. It is important to take care when spraying grassy weeds because the compact surface area is more resilient than that of broadleaf weeds and is also easier to miss during spraying.

Does WeedKleen work on Perennial and Annual Weeds?
Yes, WeedKleen will work on both perennial and annual weeds. However, WeedKleen will not kill the root structure of perennial weeds initially. Therefore, perennial weeds may need additional applications before a complete control is achieved.

What is the difference between WeedKleen and horticultural vinegar?
The secret to WeedKleen’s efficacy is the synergistic blend of Acetic Acid and Citric Acid. This mixture dramatically increases the performance beyond horticultural vinegar (Acetic Acid) alone. WeedKleen also contains a surfactant that holds the product onto the leaf structure to maximize impact.

How do I operate the WeedKleen sprayer? 
Once you have inserted the included sprayer into the bottle and tightened securely, you are ready to go. Point the sprayer at its target and adjust the white nozzle tip to either “SPRAY” or “STREAM” or “OFF” as needed.   Remember that WeedKleen is “non-selective” and destroys the cellular structure of any plant with which it comes in contact.  It is quickly biodegradable and safe for pets and kids when used as directed.   Please read the directions before using.  Happy WeedKleening!

How Do I store WeedKleen and how long can I store it?
WeedKleen can be stored in any temperature and should not deteriorate with age. However, storing in extreme conditions or using product that has been stored for an extended period of time is NOT recommended.
