    What type of ice melt would you use in temps from -30 to 0 I have used a combo of both rock salt and calcium chloride. I used only rock solt last year and when it got below 0 it seemed to just sit there. the calcium chloride does a little better but I was wandering if there was something else I could use or maybe a mix or different ice melts.

    I make my own Magic Salt using Magic -0. Works like its name.
