Ever wondered if you could just make your own, fast working, non toxic ice melt at home? Chances are, you already have everything you need already at home with you!
This is very simple to make, all you will need it
2. Dish Soap
3. Rubbing Alcohol
4. Spray Bottle Of Other Container You Want To Use
If you do not have rubbing Alcohol, sometimes using vinegar can help some, but rubbing alcohol is the best part of the mixture that really does the trick!
During the cold times of year ice melt is usually flying of the shelves, and it is typically toxic if any is eaten, for example if your dog eats ice melt from the store it can EASILY kill them or make them very sick, it is best to make your own mixture so you know EXACTLY what is in the mixture. This is also quite a bit cheaper, you get alot more, and it works just as good! Its a WIN – WIN – WIN situation!
Basically, all you do is mix the mixture with about 1/3 rubbing alcohol and 2/3 water, you can add more alcohol the colder temps it is outside. But mix warm water and the alcohol in your container. Then add a squirt or a few drops of dish soap in the mix and then shake it up for about 15 seconds!
Now you can spray this mixture or pour it onto your car window, sidewalk, deck or wherever there is ice, and it should then quickly start to melt away!
