One Solution To All Problems

If you see, most of the above-mentioned winter problems can be solved with one solution- using the best ice melt. 

Now the question is, what does a good ice melt mean? And how to choose one? Below-mentioned are some of the properties you must look for while buying your stock of ice melt. Your best ice melt should be-

1- Non-toxic & chemical-free

use an ice melt that is non-toxic and chemical-free. Common ice melting salts have chloride in one or the other form. These harmful chemicals burn the paws of our four-legged friends. They may also corrode the driveways and pathways. Fortunately, there are safe, non-toxic, and chemical-free ice melt solutions available in the market to make your winters safe and unpolluted. 

2- Able to prevent ice & snow from sticking

Your ideal ice melter should also work as pre-treatment. Few ice melt can prevent ice from sticking to surfaces for up to three days of using it, making shoveling a much easier task.

3- Able to prevent freeze-thaw cycle

To preserve your concrete and extend its lifespan, find an ice melt product that will keep melted ice in a liquid state for a longer duration. It means that ice melt will not refreeze as easily or as often, thus preventing the freeze-thaw cycle.

4- Pet Friendly

Some of the best products you have heard are not safe to use. Most of them are chloride-based and not safe for pets. They may cause problems like skin irritation, eyes, nose and lung burning, and nausea if ingested. Safe Paw is one such product that is a 100% pet-safe ice melt solution that doesn’t burn their paws or poison the pet if ingested. It does not have salt in its blend. It uses a proprietary blend of ingredients that break down the structure of the ice to melt it.
