Rated 5 out of 5Â by ZMAN WORKED GREAT AS A TEFLON SHIELD FOR ICE AND SNOW
APPLIED THE WEEK OF 01/05/14 IN ST LOUIS, MO.
SPRAYED DRIVEWAY AND SIDEWALK WHEN TEMP GOT BELOW 35Â°. TEMPS WENT DOWN TO -8Â° WITH WINDCHILL OF -30Â°. I SHOVELED 3 TIMES DURING THIS PERIOD. SNOW NEVER STUCK TO CONCRETE. TWO DAYS LATER WE HAD ANOTHER WAVE OF 2 IN. STILL NO PROBLEM. IT JUST CREATES A TEFLON LIKE COATING. PRICE AND SHIPPING IS JUSTIFIABLE WHEN YOU BUY 5 GALLON CONTAINER. BETTER THAN BUYING 5 BAGS OF 50LB ICE MELT. IT TOOK @ 2 1/2 GALLONS FOR 4 CAR SPACE DRIVEWAY AND SMALL SIDEWALK.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JerseyCruiser Bare Ground actually WORKS!!!!
All products boast how "Good they are", but most of the time we buy them and they don't work as well as they did on the commercial that drove us to buy it. Bare Ground actually WORKS!!! This is my 4th season using Bare Ground and all I can say is that when my neighbor's property has snow on the sidewalk, mine is still clear and no ice. After the larger snow storms, instead of breaking my back shovelling, I can easily move snow to the side, right down to the surface, even if it has been walked on or driven over. My co-workers are glad that I told them about it, and they too, have become Bare Ground users. Just remember to clean your sprayer after you use it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by grammyinNH Easy to use
We purchased this product to use on the metal edging of our roof above a slider door where ice builds up above the doggie door; and for our stairs and long wood walkway. So far so good. I find it a learning process with this product, as we had a sever cold snap, and I wasted product trying to get rid of the ice as it rained. The rain simply washed it away. What did work was; after the rain stopped, a snow storm was expected. This time I applied the product to the dry stairs, and viola, after the snow storm I cleared the snow and was down to bare wood that dried right away. And, best of all, no ice build up on the roof's edge. Before each storm, I simply spray the product on the area's I need to use it on. I might give this product a higher rating, but it hasn't been long enough in use to do that at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by paul Great product
i used this last winter to keep my driveway clear anytime it snowed 2 inches or more. It worked great. We had no ice buildup on the driveway and it did a great job combating the snow.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by facilitymanager Major Disappointment
I had such hope for this product, but was severely disappointed. This item was a complete waste of time and resources. It did nothing to improve snow removal at our commercial property.
At first, we thought perhaps we were applying the product too thin because there was no benefit. Then we heavily treated a 4 ft. x 4 ft. area in the middle of an untreated parking lot as a test. After 1/2" of snow there was no noticeable difference in the treated vs. untreated area. You couldn't tell if we used the Bare Ground Liquid Deicer.
It was very unfortunate because we have and alternate product with a darker, heavier odor that is more effective. But we were hoping to find success with Bare Ground because it is clear and odorless. Unfortunately, it is also ineffective.
