    Maybe what he read in your title is what stuck in his memory. Even with the spelling mistake.

    No Problem but I think he was trying to help you. He just didn't read it correctly.

    Are you asked to spread treated salt or do you think it is that much better.

    Ofcourse, might be looking for the impossible. We have our own triaxles and loaders and buy salt in bulk. Was hoping to find a solution that acts the same as magic salt which we could apply, throwing it out there to see what comes back. I have heard of a beet juice by product that has been used... maybe the administrator will correct my spelling on my original post cause I can't !

    There are guys on here that might be able to help. We use Clearlane on walks but personable I don't see the savings in regular salt compared to treated. I know you should be able to put down less but that's hard to do most nights. I already don't think there is enough down until it starts to melt.

    Clearlane from Cargill is not that much more then white salt. I'm not sure who you buy from but you might want to check them out. It is green salt.

    Do you have a number for them? I tried the web site but couldn't find the number and the contact sheet won't work for me.
