Driving in the winter can be scary. With a few precautions, you can make your driveway a safer place.
Start with salt. You probably see heavy bags of road salt on sidewalks around your neighborhood, but did you know standard snow melt can harm the skin on pets’ paws and damage plants?
Try a more eco-friendly pet-safe snow melter instead to keep the pets and plants happy. An ice-melt spreader distributes the salt evenly for better traction and (after a good rinse) doubles as a post-winter garden tool for sowing seeds or watering plants.
Snow shovels and snow blowers do the same job in different ways. Snow shovels require more manual labor, but attachments like a second handle or ergonomic design can speed up the job. Snowblowers are more expensive, but this power equipment can quickly plow through that blanket of snow trapping your car.
