    Has anyone used Roadrunner brand ice melt? How did it work? Says a combination of calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and sodium chloride pellets. I'm new to snow removal (2nd year) and looking for a good, safe ice melt. Thanks.

    I have used it many times, very nice. I think we used to buy it from sam's club.

    Threw a lot of it during the salt shortage. Works fine. It's basically rock salt with a coating of mag. I doubt there's any calcium in it, judging by the price point. I wouldn't consider it a safer alternative to rock.
