This just in! You really, really, really don’t have to resort to chemical warfare you’re your garden weeds this summer! Tempting though it may be to reach for toxic chemical herbicides as unwanted flora start to sprout up in your painstakingly maintained flower bed or vegetable patch, you’ve got far better options. We like Nature’s Avenger Organic Herbicide—not only because it smells like delicious orange, but also because it’s EPA-certified, biodegradable, fast-acting (results in 2 hours), and made from a citrus oil base that performs as well as synthetic herbicides. It’ll also leave your garden and lawn much more child and pet friendly; Remember when your parents used to tell you not to run around on the lawn after it had been sprayed? Not an issue! Romp about all you like after dousing the place with Avenger—the natural spray won’t do anyone a bit of harm. Order online—get a 24 ounce spray bottle for $8.95, a 32 ounce jug of concentrate for $18.95, or, if your lawn is the size of Central Park, a gallon jug of concentrate for $59.95.
