I like it too, I want to try out the vinegar thing on the oxalis weeds I can't get rid of:)

I've become a big believer in the chamomile tea for seedlings. Now I just set out a 2 gallon glass jar and make sun tea and use it in the watering can or misting bottle. Hydrogen peroxide is good for fighting disease during germination too, but make one mistake on solution strength and you can fry the seedling.
