    Is Magic salt a liquid that is applied to regular rock salt? Or does the Magic Salt come in rock form? How much does it cost?

    Magic salt is rock salt treated with Magic -0, a liquid. You can buy the liquid and treat your own salt or in some areas buy the salt already treated. Magic salt is also availible in bag form. Don't know the pricing in your area, but a search on their website should point you toward a dealer near you.

    The second link worked. Who that stuff is expensive. I wonder how much it is bagged. The problem is i want something good. The places i plow wants sand only. But it is a pain in the a*s. I want to use salt to protect the people walking and riving over it as well as my self. But i guess it all comes down to the money. I think last year if i can remember correctly sand was $65 a yard. Salt is probably 3 times the price plus the magic 0. They wont pay that.

    Magic is really nothing but rock salt. I was at a landscape show and the local company was giving #25 bags away.I tried it on my driveway but couldn't really tell if it worked it was to late in the season. I think it was like 13.00 a bag.
