Weeds between interlock driveway

Hello,
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get rid of weeds in an interlock driveway? I have tried pulling them out by hand (nearly impossible to get the root and very time consuming and discouraging as they come back), weed-b-gone (spent tons of money and it doesn't work) vinegar, Scotts path clear and a trimmer/weed whacker (which just trims the surface). I am going crazy. Our driveway looks terrible and I have spent a lot of time and effort on it. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas that worked for them?
Thanks!

What about some Borax, kills ants too :)

"Borax: Get the jump on those weeds that grow in the cracks of the concrete outside your house by sprinkling borax into all the crevices where you’ve seen weeds grow in the past. It will kill them off before they have a chance to take root. When applied around the foundation of your home, it will also keep ants and other six-legged intruders from entering your house. But be very careful when applying borax — it is toxic to plants."

Boiling water or Round-up (way more potent than Path Clear) should get the majority of them. Round-up has the advantage of discouraging future weeds - at least for a while. A quality polymeric sand between your stones will help inhibit weeds going forward.

Salt - sterilizes the soil - nothing will ever grow again.

pressure was them out works....but then you have to put sand down again......I would try the vinegar...with this heatwave it might work in finally killing them.

boiling water may work.

Power wash the soil out of the gaps and then apply polymeric sand.
