What is Safe Use of Vinegar Spray for Weeds?

Hi

Love this site - its been very helpful.

But I hope someone can answer this for me:

I made up a batch of salt and vinegar to kill the upcoming weeds in my driveway. How far away should I spray this from desirable plants and grass? I did spray some but left it about a foot from the grass in one area-hope it's not too close! If so, how can I remove it?

Thank you for your help!

MEG: THERE IS SOME DANGER OF THE SALT LEACHING TO AFFECT PLANTS ADJACENT TO THOSE YOU HAVE SPRAYED, DEPENDING ON QUANTITY OF SALT, FREQUENCY OF RAIN ETC. VINEGAR USED ON ITS OWN SHOULD ONLY AFFECT THOSE PLANTS IT COMES IN CONTACT WITH DIRECTLY.
