    I used to use this stuff called Enviormelt, it was concrete safe, turf safe and safe for pets

    I have used Magnesium Chloride in the past, its supposed to be the safest stuff you can get, but its expensive ie $15+ per bag, and one drop of water in a bag will turn it all to white goo. It works very well, if you can keep it dry. Also, its not supposed to track inside like calcium and salt do. Hope that helps.
