Customer Questions & Answers

what is the differnce between differennt salt types? Is it true that the cheaper one will crack the cement?

There is a big difference in prices
Asked by: micky
Yes. Any type of salt will crack concrete. What happens is the salt diffuses into the grain boundaries and cracks the cement or concrete there. This leads to macroworld concrete spalling on your concrete. Look at where your car tires have tracked in salt inside your garage. It is spalling there no matter how old it is. Hot water poured onto a stoop or stairs covered with with ice, will melt the ice even down to 20 degrees. Next, blow off all the water you can with a leaf blower. Get it as "dry" as you can get it. It can't be snowing when you do this. Any thin layer of ice will evaporate in a few hours, even down to 20 degrees. sunlight helps but so does wind movement. Use all purpose sand until conditions are right to remove any ice on a stoop or stairs. What about ice forming at about 32 degrees? What can I do? Buy or find a roofer that uses Titanium UDL synthetic "roofing paper" under shingles. HD carries Titanium but it is not cheap. $117 per roll for 4 foot wide and 100 feet long. If you find a roofer this summer doing a roof, offer to buy some UDL from him at a minimum of $1.50 per foot. It won't crack in the winter because it is a thin film of polyethylene, it's reinforced, and textured for gripping in rain water or dew. The UDL will stop most ice forming from falling sleet when it's near freezing and it makes it easy to broom off sleet that is falling on it. The anti-slip surface of reinforced fiber netting works very well on rain on roofs, but it works in the winter too. For steps, roll it down the treads and put bricks at the two ends of each tread to avoid it blowing away. Remember, hot water, a leaf blower, and a broom are relatively cheap and never spalls concrete. Always wash off salt inside a garage on the floor when you see "salt feathers" of salt from your car forming on concrete that is drying or is dry. Wash it off and squeegee the excess water off. In the spring, do it at least three times. HTH, Stefan

Is this salt suitable of making homemade ice cream?

Asked by: David
Yes. It is the same rock salt that is for ice cream (ON THE OUTSIDE) do not eat it or put it inside, but you can absolutely use it for your ice cream maker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money Bought this to help remove ice from my driveway and sidewalks. Spread it and immediately noticed it was worthless. Did not melt the ice at all it just disappears when it touches the ice. Home Depot should be ashamed and if they valued my being a customer theyd offer me a full refund. Spend a little more and get a better product.
