Homemade Crabgrass Killer: Select an old sock or nylon; pour baking soda into it. The amount you need depends on the size of the patch. More is not necessarily better; you just want enough to coat the leaves. Prepare the weeds by misting with a garden hose. Lean over the crabgrass and tap the baking soda out of the sock. Strike it with your hand and let the dust settle on the leaves. Coat the entire patch and wait a day or two. The crabgrass should turn black and die.
