De-Ice your driveway

Posted: Updated:

Ice is what we're going to be facing during winter storm part deux. Some people do not have to worry about de-icing their drive way, while others do. Reader's Digest suggests going about it this way:

  • Rock salt. It is ok to use if you do not have plants or pets around. It contains cyanide and chloride which can be dangerous to both.
  • Heat mats. These can be considered if you are in the process of building a new house or replacing the driveway.
  • Green products.
  • Sand. This is good for traction. Just keep in mind they can create a mess and clog drains if there are any nearby.
