    No way!!! Can this possibly work in Canada? Do I dare try it? For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid, 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water and pour over walkways. They won’t refreeze. No more salt eating at the concrete in your sidewalks

    Winter tip: "For icy steps & sidewalks, mix 1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing liquid, 1 Tbs. rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water. Pour over walkways. They won't re-freeze. No more salt eating away at your concrete." I plan to try this on a seldom-used section of walkway, to be sure abt the "won't re-freeze" part.
