Environmentally safe ice melter is a new green way of handling slippery ice. Most people use rock salt or other products that contain salt and that’s not good for children, pets, or any surface you put it on. Many people who use salt on ice don’t realize how unhealthy and harmful it is. Rock salt works by heating up when in contact with ice. If in contact with skin or paws it can burn and cause rashes.
Salt leftover can cause damage to surfaces it’s sprinkled on, including salt residue that clings to the bottoms of boots and shoes and is tracked indoors on floors and carpeting. In addition traces of salt can reach our water supplies and poison plants and animals in the wild.
Concrete safe ice melt is very concentrated so you will find you don’t need as much with each use like you would using a salt based ice melter. The heat it creates to melt ice lasts a lot longer than rock salt. One of the best things about safe ice melters over salt based ice melters is that is leaves an ice barrier that lasts up to three days on the surfaces you use it on. This deters ice from sticking to the surface making shoveling easier because you won’t have to chop at the ice to remove it. In fact you can even sprinkle some environmentally safe ice melter on your surfaces before ice and snow can accumulate.
One of winters most dangerous conditions to surfaces is called black ice. This is when ice encases the surface of a walk or road but is not readily visible to the naked eye. So you may think it’s safe to walk and drive as usual but you can soon find yourself sliding out of control. With environmentally safe ice melter you merely chip the surface a bit and sprinkle it over the black ice. This breaks the surface tension and allows to start melting the ice.
If you’re a driver you know how easy it is to get stuck and how difficult it is to get enough traction to move again. You know from experience you need a couple people to help push your vehicle out of that spot. You can ensure that you won’t have that problem if you keep some environmentally safe ice melter in your car for just such an occurence. Some people use cat litter to sprinkle under the tires and while that may work fine at times, it doesn’t dissolve or melt, won’t clear the ice, and will just leave a terrible mess on the surface. Environmentally safe ice melter is hands down the better choice.
Safe Paw can be used anywhere ice can be a problem. It’s safe for pets, children, plants, grass, and surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, and all types of flooring. Remember you don’t need to use as much Safe Paw as you did with salt based substances. If you do find that you’ve used an excessive amount you may find some surfaces can become discolored. If this should happen with surfaces it will fade away after a time being exposed to sun and water. If your grass should brown just water it and it will come back in the spring. If either of these should occur make sure you lesson the amount of Safe Paw you are using. You won’t find a better alternative anywhere on the market.
