De-icing Tips

More snow on the way so here are some de-icing tips:

When to use De-Icing Salt:
  • the night before to prevent ice and frost forming and to clear or melt ice and frost already formed.
What type of salt:
  • Brown road salt is unrefined and cheaper so perfect for roads, car parks, large areas, not where bringing in 'dirty residues' into homes, work, shopping centres is a concern.
  • White de-icing salt is refined and washes away more easily and is less corrosive. Ideal for areas that need to be protected and look clean.

Have a good supply of brown or white salt and other necessary equipment. We have a wide range in our Winter Essentials which should cater for every need.
