    This question is aimed toward the guys that clear sidewalks and driveways. Lots of folks on this site recommend spreading salt, but as far as I know salt has a tendency to destroy cement sidewalks and driveways. What do you guys use instead of salt? Any advice would be appreciated.

    on cement you use calcium chloride....if you get "snow" magazine, i believe the most recent issue had a write up on all the different types of salts and ice melts and their best uses.
