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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ice melt A environmental ice melt product that is easy to use and very effective. I liked the idea of not chewing up my concrete or macadam drive. Spreads easy and covers nicely. Works very well January 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Ice Melt This is a very good ice melt product. It is easy to use. I bought the same ice melt last year and the only problem I have with it is the packaging. It comes in a box and when you open it, it is in a plastic bag. Last year the bag was upside down in the box and I had a hard time getting the bag turned over. I ended up tearing the bag open on the bottom. It would have been easier to turn the box over. December 8, 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 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 Valuable Purchase This on-line purchase was one of necessity since there was no ice melt available in our area. Roof ice was a serious problem. That said, the product was everything you would want. Worked very well, was easy to use, and was reasonably priced. Would recommend. March 25, 2015
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. December 10, 2014
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 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
