This any good? Should probably show it to my neighbour so people stop slipping on his area of the sidewalk...

I checked the SDS and it says it's made of "Sodium Chloride" and "Proprietary Organic Salt & Polyol Blend". So I guess it's mostly road salt with additives to help it melt ice faster and at lower temperatures.

I guess it's handy that it's blue, since you can see where you're applying it more easily.

That's the regular pricing for PA, as I recall

I just get 20kg(?) bags of water softener for <$6 at HD. It's sodium chloride, and really clean. It doesn't leave a mess in the driveway. And it's always in stock when you need it.

At the end of winter these go on clearance at some PAs for like $2. I know that doesn't help now but I think I have 8 of these in the shed from when that happened last spring.

Alaskan ice melter contains sodium chloride and calcium chloride. Calcium chloride is exothermic, it generates heat when reacting with water. This is how it heats up and cracks ice as soon as you apply it. Sodium chloride lowers the freezing point of water, but is endothermic and requires heat to work, making it only effective to -7C but not colder. Look for the combination of both in the ingredients if you want performance similar to Alaskan ice melt.

90% of the time princess auto picks and chooses what it ships. I create an order, and half of it doesn’t ship. I doubt they’ll even ship these, even when it’s available online

Thanks to Chewfam for pointing out that this is safe for pets (had to look at the 3rd picture which has it right on the label).
