Let’s start:

#1 Ice Melt That Is Bad For Your Health

If you search the web, you will find a lot of articles on how ice melter can be bad for your health. This happens because some ice melter contains harmful chemicals and salts that can result in health issues including digestive problems and allergies. However, this does not mean that all products on the market are bad.

There are some ice melts like Safe Paw ice melt which contains no salts or harmful chemicals and is free from toxins. You can use our snowmelt without any concerns. It works well and will not cause you or others around you any health issues.

#2 Very Slow To Work

Most people use ice melt because they are fast to work. Some can help you get rid of snow in less than 20 minutes. If you don’t get the desired results from your product then you’re either using a poor quality snow melt or you’re not using the right quantity.

Pet safe ice melter homemade, for example, can be slow as they don’t always contain the right mixture. This is why it is important that you only purchase a reliable product like Safe Paw ice melt.

#3 Ice Melt Can Destroy Plants

We like it green and would never promote a product that’s bad for the environment. If you think all ice melts harm plants then you’re mistaken. Once again, it boils down to the product you’re using.

Some snow melter contains salts that can be bad for your lawn as salts prevent nutrients from reaching plants, which stunts their growth. However, ice melter that contains no salt or other harmful chemicals causes no harm to plants.

In fact, some products contain urea, which can be good for plants as it’s a fertilizer and helps plants grow well.

#4 You Can Have Pet Safe Ice Melt Homemade

If you think you can have pet safe ice melter homemade, then you’re wrong. It’s a myth.

You’ll find various pet-safe ice melter homemade recipes on the internet. The makers promote these products as reliable and pet safe but they’re far from perfect.

Most pet safe snow melter will either not work well or end up causing harm to your pets. This is because most recipes use rock salt or other salts to create ice melter. 

Since this ingredient is easily available, you’ll find it in most recipes. Users end up turning to pet-safe ice melt homemade recipes without realizing the consequences.

They can cause rashes, digestive issues, and even cancers. Only use a pet-safe product that’s guaranteed and tested like Safe Paw ice melt. Go here to have a look at our products and pick one that suits your requirements.
