Snow is beautiful to look at, but not fun to keep off your driveway. Thankfully, his winter hasn't been too harsh, but you never know what's lurking around the corner when it comes to Mother Nature. In the event of major snowflake accumulation, what will help you do the trick for the least amount of money and effort?
Generally, a good shovel and a bag of rock salt will put you in a good place for snow preparation, but there's something else that can help, too. It's called Liquid Snow Shovel, a formula that you can easily apply to your sidewalks and driveway with an inexpensive pump sprayer. The liquid product will help keep your surfaces ice-free down to 25 degrees below zero.
How do the savings match up? Well, rock salt goes for about $20 per 25-pound bag. This will cover 500 square feet of asphalt. Meanwhile, that same $20 will buy you one gallon of Liquid Snow Shovel, which covers 1,000 square feet of asphalt. So, you'll be able to treat more ground for the same amount of money.
That's not the only benefit of this product. While shoveling removes snow, it also removes rock salt. Liquid Snow Shovel seeps into your driveway and actually helps you use less the next time you apply. Also, unlike rock salt, this special liquid formula won't corrode your driveway, and is both pet- and plant-friendly.
So, before the next snowfall, stock up on Liquid Snow Shovel instead of rock salt. It will melt the ice for the best price.
