we want to buy and store outdoors for access by residents in our multifamily community. we would store in durable plastic containers - want to be certain there are no chemical interactions that would make this a bad idea.

40 lb. Coated Granular Ice Melt is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works The product works fine; but the plastic bag is thin and was torn in the box. Most of the product was wasted in the box. MESSY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ice melt Does a great job. But the plastic bag the product is in needs to be made of heavier plastic cause it tears to easly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in time I couldn't get my hands on Rock Salt fast enough last Winter. Last year I made several trips to various stores, buying 2lb bags & 5lb bags & even a one lb Zip Lock bag of ice melt from a local deli for over $10.00 just to keep people from slipping on my stoop. This year I figured why not let HD & UPS take care of it for me. I ordered a 40lb box of ice melt & had it delivered right to my front door. 1 week later I was using it due to a recent 'freak' ice storm on October 29th. Was I happy to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This ice melt really works!!! Since it's in one large bag, I wish it came with a scooper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked immediately on a very steep driveway covered with solid ice. I bought this in anticipation of Snowpocalypse 2014 (not even realizing that we would have a second ice storm two weeks later). I chose this product (magnesium chloride) after researching the problems that sodium chloride can have on concrete driveways. Magnesium chloride is not as likely to eat into the concrete. It worked within minutes to make my extremely steep driveway usable. I had it delivered to the door instead of picking it up at the store because of the weight (40 lbs.) - I didn't want to lift the box in and out of my car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is great, packaging is not I ordered two 40 pound boxes of this ice melt. The product works great and because it is pet friendly, my very large dog thinks it is great too. I would give this product a 5 star rating except both cardboard boxes were broken when I picked them up from Home Depot, making them very very hard to handle. This was due to the quality of the box material. So if someone improves the packaging of this product I will purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product I was a little skeptical when I first got this product. When I opened it all I saw was looked like dirty rock salt. Temperature has been near zero or below for weeks. Used a old plastic spreader to see how it would work. It works really good . Not sure what the brown stuff is on it but it worked for me even in such cold weather.
