Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So we are soon approaching Red's first winter with us. Trying to be prepared and wanted to stock up on some pet safe ice melting crystals/pellets for the driveway.

I do see that "Safe Paw" brand seems to be the top choice even though the way it melts is not perfect in negative temperatures. I've read reveiws from users saying that the pellets end up melting in a patchy pattern.

Any recommendations? Pros and Cons of what you currently use or have used in the past?

While kitty litter might not melt the ice it sure does make it easier to walk on. That's pretty much all we do lol.

I've tried the kitty litter before and it didn't work too well for me. Not sure if it was because I got a cheap 'o store brand one or if it was because my previous landlord let her hill of a driveway freeze over with ice that was 2 inches thick! Evil or Very Mad

Mix warm water with dish soap and rubbing alcohol. It will melt it without bothering paws.
