    homestead survival tip for icy steps and sidewalks

  • Leslie Ann Silver

    Dawn dish soap does not freeze at below zero temperatures. To prevent icy stairs, pour the mixture over the front step as soon as the temperatures begin to drop. The soap will not freeze thereby keeping the step ice free. It is inexpensive and will not damage any surfaces you put it on, like rock salt can.

    For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix 1 tsp of Dawn dish washing liquid, 1 TBSP of rubbing alcohol & 1/2 gallon hot/warm water & pour over walkways. They won't refreeze. ****This is so much better for dog's paws than Rock Salt****

To make your own shapeable ice pack: Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 3 parts water in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer. (The alcohol will prevent the water from freezing completely.) When it’s frozen, wrap with a towel or cloth of some sort and apply. Tip: If the mixture freezes too hard, just add a little more alcohol. If it’s too slushy, add a little more water.
