    i take care of a large shopping mall, has anyone had luck with a product that will not leave the white chalky residue on stamped concrete?

    i have been using calcium chloride, and even while ive tried to use as little as possible....it still leaves a white powdery residue

    anyone have ideas?

    Get some liquid and a hand sprayer if it's not a huge area to cover, I have thought about this for my downtown sidewalks but already have the cal. bags!!!

    I have found a salt that works excellent and i found it at a very reasonable price.. Plus it doesnt leave residue..... Its sold at Menards at $7.48 per 80 pound bag . only $240 a pallet ... 30 bags per pallet .. it s a water softner ice melt combonation , and boy does it work well on ice and snow... just a suggestion ........
