    When I need to get rid of salt I run down to my local city garage and dump it into their pile. They can always use extra!

    Absolute worst case, hot water makes short work of it...

    Just make sure if you use the hot water method, your on a driveway that won't let the salt water runoff get to any grass, or vegatation. If it does, it will turn a whole new pretty shade of brown.

    Excellent point. Also, I forgot to mention that if you do this method....MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON ASPHALT!! That salt, having been stranded in the hopper for awhile, will likely be very hungry.

    Concrete stands no chance.

    cattle ranchers would probably take the chunks off you hands or you could dump it on my pile...
