        Comments about Road Runner 20 lb. Bag of Ice Melt:

        bags had small holes in them from the contents due to the stacking of them at the store.
        I like to use a mix of about %50 oil dry mixed in with the salt. This gives traction and helps to suck up the melted water (IMO) also stretches the salt so I do not need to use as much.
        Works for me!

                              I'm happy to help, Curious! This Road Runner 20 lb. Bag of Ice Melt (Part No. 20B-RR) contains sodium chloride, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride. Sodium chloride can damage asphalt, concrete, brick, stone, metal, grass, plants and wood decks. This should not be used on concrete less than 1 year old. Calcium chloride can damage grass and plants when overapplied and magnesium chloride can also damage plants when overapplied as well as be lethal to pets that suffer from kidney disease if they ingest the product.

                              All of the salt types can cause damage to asphalt or concrete. The damage is typically considered minimal to moderate. Magnesium chloride can be moderate to significant. The safest possible ice-melt for concrete and the environment is urea based. Urea based ice-melt is not typically as effective as "salt" based ice-melts.

                              Hi Joggy, great question! This ice melt is safe on concrete and sidewalks. When used correctly means that only 2-3 oz. per square yard should be applied. Sprinkle evenly on to the surface area to be treated. Remove slush and water when melted to prevent re-freezing.
