Was having a difficult time posting this. It's working now.

How do I get rid of these weeds? Boiling water, vinegar or Epson salts didn't help.

The roots are skinny and long and break near the end so always come back at the same spot plus more each weeding time.

You can try adding dish soap to that solution, and use regular table salt or salt made to melt snow. The dish soap acts as a surfactant, and helps spread the vinegar and salt to all parts of the plant. This works best on small plants, so best time to use this is in early spring when you see the plant starting to sprout.
If these weeds are around your garden plants, they will be affected also.
Other than that, unless you go with a prepared commercial herbicide, the only other way I would know of is digging deep with a long hand tool and removing the weeds that way.
Good luck Millie
