Using The Right Ice Melter This Winter


Take ice melting into the 21st century with Safe Paw Ice Melter. Safe Paw is specially formulated to melt ice faster than other products, while providing a safe walking surface with a proprietary traction agent. On a sunny day, Safe Paw works even faster, as each pellet absorbs heat from the sun to melt the ice even faster. Safe Paw keeps working even after the ice has melted, by leaving a special “shield” layer that will keep ice from sticking for three days. This way, you can wait out any fresh snowfall, then shovel the fresh snow without the hassle of scraping up more ice.

Unlike traditional ice melting salts, Safe Paw is environmentally safe and salt free, so it won’t harm your plants. Even better, Safe Paw is safe for use on decking, and won’t even stain your floor if you accidentally spill some. Best of all, Safe Paw is safe for use around children and pets, because it doesn’t use deadly chemicals like potassium chloride or calcium chloride, both of which are used in traditional salts. Because of this, Safe Paw has recently been awarded the PTPA Green Product Seal and has been included in the Whole Green Catalog: 1000 Best Things For You and the Earth.

So, how does Safe Paw ice melter do all of this and remain safe to use around pets and children? Safe Paw uses a patented dual-effect compound, made of a modified crystalline amide core infused with a special glycol admixture and the patented traction agents mentioned earlier. This design gives Safe Paw a two-way timed release action, where the the liquid component starts melting and breaking the surface tension while the crystal core penetrates and destabilizes the ice, melting it even faster. At this point, the traction agent has been applied, allowing you to safely walk on the ice  while Safe Paw does its job. Remember, once the sun comes out, Safe Paw will concentrate the solar heat, making it work faster still. Once the ice is melted, Safe Paw’s “shield” effect comes into play, giving you three more days before you even have to apply it again. Safe Paw is the only product on the market with all of these features, and its green pellet form makes it easy to distinguish from salt-based products.

To wrap it all up, not only is  Safe Paw ice melter safe to use around pets, it’s also safe to use around children and plants, and you can use it anywhere that there is ice. Safe Paw is also the only product that lets you safely cross the ice even before it’s been melted, and its ice-prevention feature is the key to huge savings the longer you use it.
