Cold weather is upon us, with freezing temperatures and ice or snow about to make an appearance in our area soon. A product we should all have on hand this time of year is Ice Melt. It can keep our driveways clear and walkways safe when applied correctly. Burns Feed Store carries the Salt Depot “Ice Heat” brand of Ice Melt in 20lb. and 50 lb. bags. Many people use rock salt to clear ice and snow from areas of foot and vehicle traffic around their home or business.

Several reasons to use Ice Melt instead of rock salt:
-Contains a non-staining blue dye for controlled application
-Melts down to -7 degrees F (-22 deg. C)
-More effective than rock salt
