You might not need it today, but you will sooner or later so you may want to bookmark this post for use at a later date. We all know that salt can damage your cement sidewalk and driveway. Many ice melt products are safe to use on driveways and say so on the label. But if you're out of that stuff and really need some ice melt like right now, it's super easy to make at home. All you need is 1/2 gallon warm water, some dishwashing liquid, and some rubbing alcohol!
