Select The Best Ice Melt For Your Home This Winter!

Deicer Safe For Concrete

There is no doubt your ice melt selection creates a significant impact on how your winter goes; however, what is even more essential is the type of deicer safe for concrete you use. Unfortunately, almost everything around us is constructed of concrete, and when it comes to our driveways and sidewalks, you can only be too careful!

So, how do you know which safe pet ice melter will work for you? Do you know the number of brands in the market? Let’s give you a quick walkthrough of the brands available in the market and their ingredients. 

Safe Paw 

A 100% eco-friendly deicer safe for concrete, Safe Paw is Patent Approved Green Seal (PTPA) product is a patented dual-effect compound. It attracts heat and breaks the surface tension; the crystal core quickly penetrates, destabilizes the ice, and speeds up the melting process. It does not react with pets’ paws, does not trace back to the house as it does not stick to your shoes, and keeps your children safe too! And the best part, it does not leave any residue on your concrete or vegetation. The specially modified carbonyl diamide crystals and special glycols work wonders.

Snow Joe Beet It Ice Melt 

A deicer safe for concrete, Snow Joe Beet It Ice Melt comprises Calcium Magnesium Acetate and other ice melt blends with a supplement of beet juice. While it is a safe pet ice melter, it is not entirely devoid of any faults. While a beet-infused ice melt is pet-friendly and kid-friendly, it does leave a purplish residue around. In addition, it does stick to the boots and trace back home. 

Earthborn Elements Snow Melt 

A rapid-action ice melt works as soon as it comes in contact with the surface. It comprises technical-grade calcium chloride with a blend of 10% sodium chloride and magnesium chloride. It is a safe pet ice melter; however, prolonged exposure can cause skin irritation and dry your pet’s footpads. Since it contains chloride salts this ice melt can also damage your concrete driveways.

Redmond Ice Slicer 

Another ice melt readily available in the market, the Redmond Ice Slicer, comprises naturally occurring mineral salt, is the only ingredient, and is considered safe for pets and vegetation. It is advisable to pay attention to the concrete over time and your pet’s paws for any abrasion. It is granular and works up to zero degrees Fahrenheit only. Hence, it is not very effective at extremely low temperatures.

Green Gobbler Ice Melt 

A magnesium chloride ice melt is considered a safe pet ice melter that instantly melts ice because of its exothermic nature. However, since it is a chlorine-based product, you must look for damage to pavers and driveways.


With more than 100 ice melter products available in the market today, you are bound to get confused. But before choosing the best deicer safe for concrete, ensure you check their chemical composition, temperature modulation, effect on vegetation and pets, and their application process.
