Safe Ice Melt For Your Pets And Plants

Paw Safe Ice Melt - Safe Paw

A few of the frequently asked questions are whether kosher salt to melt ice is good or not. Whether chloride-based ice melts harm the environment, or are they safe? When is the right time to apply deicers? How can we protect our pets and plants from the after-effects of ice melt? All these questions put any mind under duress because of the choices we have to make.

There are several ice melt products in the market, such as calcium chloride, potassium chloride, rock salt or kosher salt, magnesium chloride, etc. While each has a distinct identity, they have certain commonalities too.

1. Almost all ice melt products are exothermic. The constant freeze/thaw cycle weakens the concrete surface and develops cracks that need repairs later. In addition, it increases the overhead costs. 

2. Pets have sensitive paws, and while we use kosher salt to melt ice in many residential and commercial places, we also need to pay attention to the side effects. It is highly likely to burn or cut their paws. If they ingest it accidentally, it will cause them stomach ailments and digestion issues, thus increasing your medical expenses. Some dogs or cats also develop rashes due to constant exposure to ice melt products

3. Almost all ice melt products leave a residue around the concrete and vegetation, making it difficult to remove later. The garden or foliage you spent months trying to grow is destroyed in one winter because of the whitish layer on the soil and the plants. The ground loses its moisture as the salt absorbs all moisture and weakens the plants. It is an expensive affair to replant.

4. Kids tend to touch any surface and unknowingly put their fingers in their mouths. Therefore, if they ingest any ice melt product, it will cause a tummy upset or, worse, a rash. Consequently, you must store all ice melt products and kosher salt to melt ice away from their reach.
