Quick Ice Dam Cure Fill the leg of discarded pair of panty hose with a calcium chloride ice melter. Lay the hose onto the roof so it crosses the ice dam and overhangs the gutter. If necessary, use a long-handled garden rake or hoe to push it into position. Or lay a loaf of french bread on the roof as seen in the picture.
Camping Handwarmers 1. Fill a ziploc bag 1/4 of the way full with calcium chloride ice-melt pellets, found at most hardware stores. 2. Place another bag of water within. 3. SQUEEZE until the interior bag pops! Voila! 20 minutes to an hour of cheap heat!
