Bare Ground box of coated granular blend comes in a convenient box with cutout carry handles. The Bare Ground coated granular blend is a combination of powerful ice melters and a corn derived corrosion inhibitor. The granular blend starts with a base of sodium chloride which is coated with liquid magnesium chloride and a corn based inhibitor. The resulting product is about 40% less corrosive than a standard salt ice melter and acts more quickly and at lower temperatures.

  • Coated blend is easy to carry
  • Coated blend has no messy plastic bags to tear and break
  • Coated blend contains 40 lbs. of coated granular blended salt which is fast-acting and lower in corrosion
  • Bare Ground uses a special agriculturally derived by-product for corrosion inhibiting
  • Bare Ground actually coats each granule with magnesium chloride to make it fast-acting
  • Unique blend of magnesium chloride, sodium chloride and corn derived corrosion inhibitor
  • Stores neatly without hassle
  • Gentler on the environment and infra-structure

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! This ice melt really works!!! Since it's in one large bag, I wish it came with a scooper. March 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 1, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bad experience with online purchase the boxes were damaged when i got it. The product in the box was in a plastic bag. the tie for one of the the bags dropped off and the bag was left open. the product was damp and had a brownish color. don't know if the product will work since we have no snow as yet. don't think i will buy any thing on line from Home Depot again. this was the second incident of damaged goods received from Home Depot foe an online purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Salt This salt works well in tough climates. The package that it comes in can be improved however. It arrives in a big box in a plastic bag which is annoying to handle when the salt gets low after usage. Small issue but worth mentioning. All in all, this salt is very good and is better for your surface than most. April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 28, 2014
