EXCELLENT

"I wouldn't see a winter in NY without this product. My paths are the only ones in the neighborhood that are cleared to PERFECTION. It doesn't ELIMINATE shoveling after a storm, but it makes the job exponentially easier, and leaves paths free of slippery ice and remnants of snow. For an inch or two of snow, it eliminates shoveling completely. Essential for steps!!! I reapply when a storm is expected, and I probably have an overlap of application, which makes things even better.... It certainly takes the back-break out of the job!!!"

It Works!

"I have used this product for two years now and am very pleased with the results. It works good if applied before the snow for ice protection. It was also used after the snow fell and there was a layer of ice-pack on the drive. It worked VERY well when allowed to work over night on the packed ice. It is best when you shovel first and then apply to remove the remaining snow. I was really amazed at how well it removed the slip-n-slide potential from the walk. Use it as directed, don't be stingy but you don't have to over spray. It did nothing to the grass or plants from last year and it is on my next fill-up order. It does smell...but who cares! Use it and you won't be getting your nose that close to the sidwalk to smell it anyway."

"this stuff works great for icy conditions. we have a 300 foot driveway that curves and goes up at the same time. spray some of the de icer before ice comes and your good. the ice won't even stick to the concrete. it works ok with snow, helps it not to stick either, but is way better to thaw ice."

"For this product to fail you, I can only wonder how you used it; it has NEVER failed me, and I wouldn't see a winter without it. It does NOT eliminate shoveling after a storm, but it makes the job SO MUCH easier -- and my paths are the only ones without a trace of snow/ice remaining afterwards, a feat attained without breaking one's back!!!"
