Vinegar as a herbicide

(Question)

I would like to try vinegar as a weed and vegetation killer.  It requires 10% acidic acid rather than the 5% in household vinegar.  I have not been able to find this and I hope someone can direct me to a store/garden centre that sells the product.  I live in the Stouffville area.

We frequently receive questions about home solutions to address plant issues including weed and pest control.  Master Gardeners cannot recommend the use of home remedies as it is impossible to assess the implications on our environment, both present and future.  I am attaching two links for you to review, providing alternative weed control techniques.

All gardens have weeds but frankly, nothing can replace a weeder or a sharp spade drawn between the cracks in the sidewalk or pavers.
