Kill weeds organically, safely, and quickly with the Garden HotZot
UPDATE 8/17/18 – We’ll scheduled for our Kickstarter campaign to start on August 28!
Gardeners – are you tired of having to choose between weeding by hand and herbicides? Well, now there is a 3rd option that is safer than herbicides and faster and easier than weeding by hand – the Garden HotZot. Think of a re-engineered espresso machine that sits quietly in the palm of your hand until you push the button. Then, instead of making you a nice triple shot, it boils weeds to death right in the ground.
The Garden HotZot is a power tool designed specifically for gardeners. It is an organic point and shoot power sprayer that kills weeds with jets of boiling water. No stooping, no kneeling or crawling in the mud – just point and shoot.
Since the dawn of agriculture, gardeners have had the same enemy – weeds. And until recently the only solution was weeding by hand – a hard, dirty, never ending task. More recently science has given us herbicides which, although effective, are hazardous to our health and the environment. The Garden HotZot solves both these problems with a point-and-shoot variation of the method that our grandparents used – boiling water. Point the HotZot wand at a weed, push the button and the weed is scalded by jets of boiling water – literally cooking it in the ground.
Is it Safe?
The answer is “Yes”. The volume of water sprayed is tiny – just 2 ounces every 15 seconds! That’s the secret sauce of the HotZot – a tiny amount of searing hot water applied to just the plant you want to kill. The hot water transfers the heat to the weed and then cools and runs off harmlessly.
What our testers are saying;
“This is more about a disruptive technology than a change in weedkillers!”
“Such a great idea I can’t get on my knees anymore so this is fabulous that it is hand held.”
“All my gardener friends – get ready!”
“I want one!”
“I can’t wait to get one.”
“All weeds are dead – I love that thing!”
“I love killing dandelions with the HotZot!”
“I used herbicides for 30 years and this is a great alternative.”
“Best tool yet to control weeds.”
“Fast, easy and organic!”
