By now several areas of the country have dealt with a crippling round of ice storms and with salt in short supply, de-icing in some parts of the country has been rather difficult. If you haven’t been able to find de-icer, you might want to put together this homemade de-icer mix. You’ll just need access to a couple of chemicals to make it work:
6 cups of rock salt
12 cups of ammonium chloride
6 cups of magnesium sufate
Place all the ingredients into a bucket and mix well. Sprinkle the mixture on sidewalks and driveways to melt ice and snow. This mixture will even handle hard-packed snow. Have you had problems finding de-icer for your home or business? If so, what have you done to remedy the ice problem? Stay warm!
