I have used salt. Found a 5 lb. box at the grocery and sprinkled it in an area by the stoop at the garage door where we place the trash can on mulch. We kept having a tenacious plant grow there (I don’t consider any plant a weed – they all have a purpose). It was used two years ago and there’s still nothing growing there. We have since tried using it on the gravel driveway and it has worked well again. You just have to be sure its not going to wash into an area where you DO want to grow plants.
