Homemade Ice Melt Vs Safe Thaw


how to melt ice the fastest

Homeowners who want to save money on snow removal can typically do so by using homemade ice melt instead of buying commercial products. While there are some benefits to making your own, such as being able to control how much salt you’re using and reducing your impact on the environment, some people find that homemade solutions cost them more in time and money than they’re saving.

The Most Frequently Asked Question Is How Much Ice Melt To Use. 

You can find this information on the label of the bag or bucket of ice melt. The amount of ice melt you’ll need depends on how much snow you have, how much rain has fallen in the area, and how cold it is outside. If it’s been raining heavily or if there has been a lot of snowfall, you may need more than usual.

Most Popular Homemade Ice Melts

  • Salt

Salt is the simplest ice melter you can find around the house. Spread the plain salt over the area that is covered in snow. Even though it is a typical homemade ice melt, it is highly corrosive. It will leave your concrete and surroundings damaged. It also corrodes machinery and vehicles.

  • Baking Soda

Sprinkle baking soda on the snow and then wait for the ice to melt. But you must ensure you do not immediately use the path sprinkled with soda. Hence, it is not very practical for businesses.

  • Isopropyl Alcohol 

Take a bottle of isopropyl alcohol with an alcohol purity level of at least 70%. Include between two and three drops of liquid dishwashing detergent in the mixture. More than moderate doses can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs. In addition, it might lead to even more ice building up.

  • Beet Juice

It’s safe for dogs, cats, and other animals you own to consume tiny amounts of beet juice. However, it will give your driveway and walkways a purple tint. To prevent stains, you must wipe and wash the surface after each application.
