Looking for a safe, non-toxic weed-killer? Try just pouring a gallon of plain, white vinegar into your hand sprayer. Use it on weeds, preferably on a hot, sunny day, and watch what happens! Use it in the morning and I bet you'll find dead, brown weeds by sundown, or certainly the next day.

Be careful, though, not to spray onto lawn or flowers. Vinegar is lethal on any green things out there.

I find this better than costly chemicals, and it won't harm any creatures (or you) if you come into contact with it.
