    You still have salt in your shakers? I've been swiping the salt every time I go out eat for the past 4 months!

    I remember seeing sidewalks applied with water conditioner salt at the end of the winter last year. Desperate times calls for desperate measures.

    the water softner salt needs to be ran over alot, but it does work but not when it really cold

    dont get the big tabs but the little pellets in the blue bags, it works fine, better in some situations

    We used "extra coarse" water softener salt last year and I tell you what, it worked great. Its from NASC and is in the blue bags. The stuff really worked better than the yellow bagged rock salt.
