DIY Keep Your Steps & Sidewalks From Freezing!

Oh how DANGEROUS icy steps and sidewalks can be.
Most of us have had the honor of pouring bucket after of scalding hot 
water on them, just to get by a few hours before it freezes again.
Or spending loads of money on harmful chemicals to put on them instead.
Not with this little recipe I came across. This will save you time & money.

Ingredients:
* 1 tablespoon of Dawn Dish Washing Liquid (or similar brand)
* 1 tablespoon of Rubbing Alcohol
* 1/2 gallon of Warm/Hot Water
Directions:
* Mix ingredients in a large container or bucket.
* Poor directly on steps and sidewalks.
* Repeat above steps until walking areas are treated.

Be safer without spending tons of time & money.

  1. Do you have to apply this every day? Sounds like adding water would just make an ice skating rink. LOL But I'm up for trying it.

    1. I used this solution last year and I only had to do it once and it lasted the entire winter. It surprisingly doesn't make it an ice skating rink, just a nice dry sidewalk without having to salt every time a snowfall hits. I am doing it right now again for this winter...:)
