    Anyone use this product called Magic Salt? http://www.magicsalt.info/

    I tried it for the first time last Friday and could not believe the results. It's regular salt treated with some kind of byproduct from a vodka plant in Europe. It's expensive, but really works great.

    definitly works good. i used magic salt last year. this year i am using blizzard wizzard which is the same thing. another product that works awsome is environmelt, i used that up until my supplier ran out, works great in tail gate spreaders also because it wont clump up

    I've not only used it for six years, but I make my own. I believe I brought the first Magic Salt to the state of Maine from John Parker's BBQ in Poukeepsie, NY in 2002.

    I'm in Poughkeepsie,NY.John Parker just sold his interest in Magic to RPS Supply,run by a nice guy named Jason.Anyway---Magic is the cat's ass--will work down to -20*,you only need half the amount of salted sand.Cost is high though--app.$100 yd.--some of my clients ***** if I use it regularly so I have to justify it.Another like product is Geo--made from sugar beets.Never heard of the vodka story--I remember reading Magic came from some farmer's by-product in upstate NY.
