Default What to use for kid friendly weed kill?

It's so warm my weeds are about to begin sprouting up. Any sort of weed preventative pellets or spray that isn't harmful to the kids like Ortho?

Maybe put this sign on your door?? Yeah, I never put stuff on our lawn for that reason. The weeds are green enough for me. I'm jealous that yours is turning green.

I had used a concoction of Epsom salt, blue dawn and whit vinegar that I used last year and it worked well.

I got a hundred year old brick driveway. I shoot the weeds coming up between the bricks with 100% vinegar from a pump sprayer, like weekly.
My yard is nothing but weeds kept trimmed to the same height.

I pay my kids to pull weeds. They got $5 and provided me with enough dandelion heads to make a wine. ;)

The salt/dawn/vinegar mix works ok.
I love peace and quiet!
