How long does it take for bleach to kill a plant?

The bleach chemicals will evaporate or dissipate in about two days (or less but better safe than sorry), making the area safe for planting. Again, bleach will kill anything but if you do get some on a plant you want to keep, just wash the plant off.

Moreover, how long does bleach take to kill plants?

Because clorine bleach dissipates within 12 hours. It does not harm the ground water. It does not harm the soil, you can go out the next day and plant right on top of the place where the weeds were the next day. :) Household vinegar/soap combination will work but weeds will return.

Secondly, what kills plants instantly? Both salt and vinegar effectively kill off plants. Salt dehydrates plants when water is added, causing them to die. Vinegar, when mixed with water, can be sprayed onto plants and around the soil to soak into the roots. However, with both substances, care must be taken.

Considering this, how long does it take for bleach to kill weeds?

one to three days

Does bleach kill weeds permanently?

Bleach is an effective herbicide. Bleach will kill most small weeds. It won't work against larger or invasive weeds like Ivy, Brambles or Knotweed. If you use it on soiled areas you will no longer be able to use that space for growing?, it can take several months before your soil is suitable for planting.
