    First, I'd suggest going to a local hardware or lumber store. Second, a local store that sells landscaping supplies (Home Depot or similar stores). Third, do an online search for "ice melt supplies".

    Personally, I make my own using rock salt and Magic -0.

    2guysandaplow, you can find a lot of information on this and the other subjects by doing a search on this site and an Internet search. I've been trying to answer your questions and don't mind doing it, but there really is a lot of good, basic information using the search feature. In fact, I just had a long reply written up about the basics of sanders (also known as spreader), then lost it before I got it posted. The crux of it was to spend some time reading brand-specific sites such as Western, Fisher (which are actually the same from the same manufacturing line), Boss, Meyer and Buyer; just to name a few.

    See the "Search" feature at the top of the page? Click on it and type in any subject of interest.
