Ice melt is a product that is used to melt ice and snow on composite decking. It is important to use a product that is safe for composite decking, as some products can damage the surface. Ice melt is available in a variety of forms, including pellets, granules, and liquids.
Safe Paw Ice Melter for Dogs & Cats, 8-lb 3-oz jug; Safe Paw Ice Melter for Dogs & Cats offers an innovative way to clear your driveways and sidewalks of winter snow and ice. While most ice melters contain salt, which can harm pets, humans, and the environment, Safe Paw is completely salt-free and recommended by veterinarians.
It uses a patented, dual-effect compound that works with a two-way timed-released action. First, it starts melting the ice instantly while breaking up the surface tension, and then it penetrates and destabilizes the ice to speed up melting—all while offering slip protection with a proprietary traction agent.
Bought three jugs a couple weeks ago, and so far it hasn’t done a whole lot of anything. And this included using when the temps were in the mid-20s for a few consecutive days. I’m finding I have to use a LOT for a minimal effect.
Probably will return the two remaining jugs and try something else. Would not buy again.
I plan on using this when we have icy conditions later on in the winter. I have two dogs, so this is why I chose this product. One downside was that when it was delivered, the cap was completely off and all the ice melt was in the shipping box.
I was able to pour it back into the container, not happily.
I have been using calcium chloride for many years, last year I was given a sample of Safe Paw and it to be very effective on my driveway, it did not leave stains, and it allowed my dog to run around without any danger.
Prior to any snow this season, I have already purchased Safe Paw, and feel confident that my driveway will be clean and safe after any snow.
Prestone’s Windshield De-Icer is made from a concentrated high-performance ice-melting formula that melts ice fast and helps reduce dangerous refreeze. Methanol is considered the most effective alcohol for melting ice, and the high methanol content in Prestone Windshield De-Icer ensures strong ice-melting power.
I was having a problem of my side windows freezing closed. The use of this product helped me get my side windows operating much quicker than other things I tried. The reason that this is important is that I close my side windows on tabs that hold insulation sheets in place when parking at a ski area.
The sheets must be removed before I can see to drive my truck. Product works as expected. But I have an unusual need. I have only used it on my side windows and side mirrors. I simply use a scraper on my windshield.
Due to my unusual needs the product has greater value to me. But the value rating I gave is for a typical driver.
I love this stuff! It’s one of the best finds I ever found! I’ve been using it for years. My car sits out so it’s usually frosty in the winter mornings. Spray, let it sit a minute and the wipers take it away.
I do have to use it a second time some really frosty mornings, but rarely. It was also a godsend when I worked at a college out in the middle of nowhere. Cold cold parking lots made the windshield a target and I could treat it and go!.
I buy this every winter! It clears up the frost on windshield so quick! I’m a short person and I can spray where I can’t actually reach 😂 just spray, and in no time put windshield wipers on and all ice is gone!!!!No scrapping in the cold!!!! Love it ❤️.
How do you clean a TimberTech deck? While TimberTech decks are designed to battle the elements, spills still happen-and dust, debris, and pollen can build up on the surface with regular foot traffic.
TimberTech Deck Cleaner is an effective and product-safe* formula that is non-toxic, bleach-free. It makes cleaning a breeze for small spots or entire deck surfaces. Also can be used for DrySpace and Pavers.
This product works great. My deck was dirty from two years of various projects. Dirt and dust were caked in the crevices of the composite deck. I tried to clear a number of time with soap, water, and a brush with no success.
This product with a brush worked like a champ. Love it.
Item was about $30 less expensive than other Internet prices. Shipping was way faster than had expected and item was well packaged. The cleaner did a beautiful job on my composite deck with minimal scrubbing.
This positive experience has led me to explore purchasing other products from DIY Home Center.
The TimberTech cleaned very well and delivery was excellent. The one gallon container was sealed in a heavy duty plastic ziplock bag and special adhesive tape was used to secure the container cap to eliminate product leakage.

Organic Melt is enriched with Fusion liquid, a patented organic and biodegradable de-icing formula, derived from degraded sugar beets for maximum melting power. It provides your driveways and sidewalks with a protective barrier against refreezing while being safe for concrete, vegetation (lawns and gardens) and pet paws.
The product does not contain any magnesium chloride or calcium chloride. Use the product as directed.
I frequently encounter ice and densely packed snow when shoveling and snow blowing around my home. Especially where temperatures fluctuate over and below zero, the thawing and re-freezing is both hazardous and makes it difficult to clear.
This works better than salt, and is safe if it ends up on my lawn, and within an hour or less of spreading it, the ice and snow is reduced to slush that is easy to clear (even if heavy). If the ice is really thick it may take a second application, but after tow large storms over the past two weeks, it’s been easy to keep my walk completely clear, down to the pavement.
Works as advertised and you only need a small amount. Works better than very harmful products containing magnesium chloride or calcium chloride and at lower temps than advertised by other products. Doesn’t leave those nasty white stains which indicates corrosion.
Better for lawns, driveways, sidewalks, pets and our freshwater lakes. Highly recommended.
I was surprised how quickly it worked – I could hear the ice ‘crackling’ as the ice melt worked. I will be purchasing more for the next thaw/freeze winter in Edmonton. Seems to not bother dog paws like so many of the traditional salt based one’s do.

Dual Blend 4300 Ice Melter contains a blend of Sodium Chloride and Magnesium Chloride that effectively melts ice while inhibiting corrosion.

Works great on aluminum and concrete – perfect all purpose ice melt. Our latest snow was wet and walking on it compressed it to slush which froze overnight, and we put this on everything and it really liquified the icy mess down to the bare surface.

Living in DFW we really don’t get much snow but like clockwork when February comes we get black ice that puts DFW on lockdown! This is great for driveway, porch, and sidewalk. Really does help with the black ice not sure about snow.
Works very well! Budget friendly. I live in Northeastern PA and we get a lot of cold and snowy days/nights. I have been using and applying right after clearing sidewalks after a winter storm, it works great! Melt and drys fairly quick.
Can be slightly clumpy at times but that’s my only gripe.
Enviromentally, child and pet safe ice melter. Dimensions: length: 12″. Width: 12″. Height: 15″. Safe paw ice melt is 100% salt free, and is safe for pets, children and the environment. Contains modified crystalline amide core infused with glycol admixture, providing a non-corrosive composition with a two-way timed release action.
It also prevents ice from sticking to surfaces for up to three days, making shoveling easier. Safe paw ice melt attracts solar heat that provides extra melting during the daylight hours. Ice melt is safe to use on concrete, asphalt and pavers, and won’t damage plants or shrubs.
While we no longer live in the north, we still experience ice and some snow during winter months. This melt really worked well up north and performs fantastically here. But it’s virtually impossible to find in local stores.
Also hard to find online if you wait till cold weather to purchase it. So get it while you can! It does the job, but like anything on the ground it can get stuck on hairy paws and in lug sole shoes. We wash our dogs paws when they come in icy, dirty or wet anyway.
But in all the years we’ve used this product have never had any bad reactions with it. Definitely a plus.
Having tried tons of “pet and family friendly” ice melts over the years I was not sure if this one would stand up to all the rave reviews. It not only did it surpassed them in our experience. Perfect for our animals and us.
It not only melted the ice, it did NOT make a slushy mess that stains the deck or inside house rugs. While more expensive we will be using this brand and from Chewy of course for all our household ice melt needs.
The safe paw product does melt ice BUT if you put it on flat stone like slate, it will stain the stone. I contacted Gaiausa, the manufacturer, and asked what to do to clean the stone and they apologized and suggested i use an oxidizing agent or that over time it will go away.
?? but the packaging says ” safe for stonework. ” i felt the answer was disingenuous. You decide if you want your walkways stained. i do not and would rather not have to powerwash or oxy clean after using safepaw.

First aid: Wash hands thoroughly after use. In case of contact with eyes, skin or mouth, rinse area thoroughly with water. Seek medical attention if large quantities are ingested or irritation to the eyes or skin persists. Warning: Do not take internally and avoid contact with eyes, skin, or clothing.

Reviews From Real Customers
I like this ice melt very much. It is my favorite brand. One problem. when it arrived, it had opened up in transit and half the container was in the cardboard box. I am not angry, though, as accidents happen.
I have ordered 2 containers of ice melt since and they arrived taped shut.
Safe Step 56720 Sure Paws Ice Melter is 100-Percent all natural organic and safe for pets’ paws and skin. Does not kill grass or vegetation. Fast acting melter melts down to-15 degree Fahrenheit. Melter comes in easy pour jug.
Leaves no powdery residue. Use on sidewalks, patios and driveways.
This stuff melts ice with no problems, but my dogs start picking up their paws within seconds of stepping on it. It was so bad my dog was yelling like she was being attacked and I had to carry her in to wash her feet off.
I wouldn’t recommend if you have smaller/midsize dogs.
Melt environmentally-friendly blend ice melter provides a greener, yet equally effective, deicing alternative to more harmful melting agents. When used as directed, melt eb will not harm grass, wood, concrete, metals or other vegetation and is safer for pets, children and the environment.
Featureseco-, pet- and kid-friendlyenhanced with cma calcium magnesium acetate for fast and effective resultscolor-coated crystals help to visually measure and dispense the right amountconvenient refillable dispenser bucket with handy scooplong lasting, time-relaxed formula provides superior traction control.
Echo friendly and safe for pavers and lawns. I have use this for several years now with no damage at all to the concrete porch or the surrounding lawn or driveway. It’s quite expensive in the 25lb containers but handy for carrying and distributing.
This is the 3rd Winter we have used this ice melt at our house and we have been super happy with how well it works! We have a dog so we wanted something more safe for her in case she walks all over some, but still strong enough to melt through the thick ice we can get.
Within 30 seconds of spreading this over already-existent ice on the ground you can hear it start to work and within just a few minutes the ice has all turned into slush.
I have used this product before, so I bought some more. You can save $10 by getting the resealable bag, but I like the tub with the snap close lid. I especially like that it is safe for cement, as we have a newly poured sidewalk and is safe for kids, plants and pets.
(we have 6 cats and the occasional pet visitors). The best part is that it quickly melts ice and snow, making foot travel much more safe with much better traction due to the granules providing additional grip to your boots.
Natural Rapport The Only Dog & Cat Pet-Safe Ice Melt, Green, 10 pound; The Only Dog & Cat Pet-Safe Ice Melt by Natural Rapport is a safer alternative for cats, dogs, plants, and your floors. The proprietary organic formula reduces corrosion which also makes it safer for your vehicles and any other equipment it comes into contact with.
It works fast and safely–what more could you want on a snowy day?.
I received this in a timely manner. I haven’t had to use it yet. I’m sure I will. Living in the Northeast of the US can be frigid. My entire street has at least one dog if not more. I have three indoor cats.
Many outdoor/feral cats as well. Not to mentions the wildlife. It makes me feel better that I can put a product out that will not harm the animals.
This product does great on concrete. Old salt would tear it up in winter. I also dont worry about it harming my dog (he is like family). It didnt destroy my plants like other salts have. I liked the old packaging better.
I wish it came in larger sizes. Everytime they have messaged me asking for a review. I have always been honest. It will work below 15° F but not was well as warmer than 15. Took longer for ice to melt when it was very cold.
We recently purchased Pet Safe Ice Melt from Natural Rapport. The price for the unit was very good and the item was shipped quickly. This is the best ice melt to use when conscious of the environment and more importantly your animals.
It works great and is not harmful. What more can you ask for!.
Chloride Free and non toxic, professionals have relied on the ingredients used in aviation grade Play SAFE Ice Blocker to Stop Ice Before it bonds to roadways and runways. Now this proven solution is available for use on your home’s and business steps, walkways, deck and drive.
Effective in the most extreme weather, simply use your sprayer to apply up to 48-hours prior to snowfall. This makes snow removal a breeze so that you can avoid ice removal, go inside, relax and listen to your neighbors battle stubborn, destructive, dangerous ice from the comfort of your favorite chair.
Anti-icing liquid pretreatments are considered best-practice by safety professionals all over the world. PlaySAFE is licensed from the aviation industry and proven to be reliable when used before snowfall.
A few minutes of preparation BEFORE snowfall will save you hours of work when the snow stops. Keep in mind that liquid precipitation can be dilutive to the solution and should be factored into your winter cleanup plan.
The PlaySafe product works okay, not as fast as some deicer products I have used to Deice my Freezer floors and blades. The only thing I do not like is it smells like a tube of Silicone on my clothing.
Art Glass Wall Sculpture – A dazzling combination of blue opaque tones and coordinating dichroic glass is fused in a kiln to become a striking work of art to brighten your wall. Ready to hang. Each is unique; exact colors and patterns will vary.
We rarely buy anything from a picture of it. Too often, the item received is not as good as the description and picture. The Ice Melt Swizzlestick by Helen Rudy is a wonderful exception to that idea.
It came beautifully and protectively packaged. As soon as we unpacked it, we loved it! As we walk past it, it reflects the light just a little differently, giving the illusion of subtle movement within the piece.
I purchased this piece to highlight an otherwise boring, narrow strip of neutral wall between some glass bricks and the shower door in my guest bathroom. The individual pieces of dichroic glass beautifully catch the light and make for surprise pops of color.
The photo does not do it justice; the piece is much prettier in person.
The Powerhouse P1000 Ice Eater is well built, solid, and sturdy. I bought the Ice Eater, the dock mount and the screen kit. It was delivered with the screen kit already installed, which was really nice.
I have a trout pond that I dredged mechanically, but it still has a fair amount of organic muck that mechanical dredging just couldn’t remove. I have spent $1000s on muck pellets and stuff like that, but this device has almost instantly improved the stream inlet and the dock areas.
Literally overnight. Now I am sure that some of the muck is just redistributed in the pond, but the thing is, when you stir up that muck layer, lots of bubbles are released, which is carbon dioxide and some hydrogen sulfide.
This agitation gets oxygen into the muck which gets the microbes working again to break down the muck. Long story short, a fantastic and natural way to reduce muck in your pond. And I have no doubt that it will reduce the filamentous algae too, since the algae just overwinters near the bottom of the pond.
With this agitation, the algae is gone too! And by the way, I am using it in the winter in Wisconsin. It is an awesome ice eater too.
We purchased this item for our mucky lake bottom. (It was over 2 ft thick) It was stinky And full of muck from years of decay before we purchased our property. We have not even had this item in the water for 24 hours and we can see such improvement.
It is awesome! We live in Minnesota where these are allowed in lakes as long as they don’t tilt down and erode. The dock bracket which you purchase separate is made not to tilt to erode the lake bottom.
Which we were uneasy about, thinking it wouldn’t work good. But the power this thing has is amazing! So it is in perfect guidelines with our state, when our nosey neighbors start talking. I am so excited to see what one week does for our shoreline, since it’s already making a difference in only 14 hours! So glad we invested the money in this product versus the more expensive “other” brands on other sites.
I bought the product a month ago. I must admit, that initially I was skeptical because of the price. However, once it arrived I could see that it was a high-quality piece of equipment. The motor is solid, well mounted, with a simple propeller.
It is housed in a very heavy duty plastic shell with stainless steel connectors to attach to a dock or other stationary object. I did a MacGyver project and mounted the unit on a rolling cart. I have been cleaning up my pond of muck around the beach and this device is powerful and amazing.
With the hundred foot long cord, I can wheel the unit pretty far out until the depth drops off and disperse decades of built-up muck.
Quickly melts ice down to -5 degrees Fahrenheit/-15 degrees Celsius Creates a powerful, heat-generating chemical reaction that melts in the harshest of winters. Safe when used as directed on air-entrained, cold-weather concrete that is at least 1 year old.
Deeply penetrates ice without leaving a powdery residue.
Ace Premium is a custom blend formula for exceptional ice melting performance. Melts ice down to minus 10F or minus 23C. Safer for vegetation and pets. Improved custom blended formula. High visibility package graphics selling features and bilingual labels.
Ace Ice Melter is designed to be safer for quality-grade, air-entrained cold-weather concretes. Nevertheless, factors like age, severity of weather, quality-of-mix and curing process may contribute to surface degradation.
If in doubt as to the quality of your surface, consult a concrete professional. Use of Ace Ice Melter exaggerates freezing and thawing cycles. The resultant stresses may damage sub-standard surfaces.
Such damage may be minimized by sealing surface prior to application and by timely removal of resultant slush. Nevertheless, it is recommended to weigh the safety benefits of non-slip surfaces over the risks of what may result in minor or cosmetic damage.
Not recommended for melting ice on roofs, gutters, downspouts or decks.
This product really works great. It melts the ice fast and comes in a Easy to handle bucket. Only downfall for me is it comes in flake form and not pellet form. The pellets work better fo me, because I can throw a cup of them and they roll all the way to the street.
Make my Job a lot quicker. All in all a great product, but the pellet form is much easier to apply!.
The conclusion of the ice melt study for composite decking found that the best product to use is a product that is specifically designed for ice melt. The study also found that using a product that is not specifically designed for ice melt can cause damage to the decking.
