Sand Vs Kitty Litter Vs Walk On Ice
Getting trapped in the snow, slush, or ice can be a nightmare. But a far worse situation is being a victim of slip and fall incidents. We all are well aware of the dangers of walking on ice. Many people keep sand or Kitty Litter in their trunks and homes to help with traction while walking on ice. But are they effective and safe to use like Walk on ice? Let’s find out.
Kitty Litter For Traction
Kitty litter does not contain rock salt. It is the fundamental reason that homeowners use it for traction as it does not burn the paws of their furry friends. It does not damage people’s skin and is safe for the environment, unlike regular ice melt. It absorbs moisture and can help with traction but is not efficacious on all surfaces and temperatures. Moreover, when wet, it turns into a slick mush that needs a lot of cleaning.
Sand enhances traction and avoids slippage on roadways and sidewalks. It is sprinkled on top of ice and snow, making it an ugly mess. While it does not melt ice or snow like salt, it does provide additional traction when used appropriately.
It can be used at any temperature as long as it is consistently applied over the ice and reapplied regularly. Because it does not dissolve ice or snow, it must be sprayed whenever new snow or ice accumulates on the concrete. It can leave more residue behind and require further clean-up when the snow or ice melts.
Walk On Ice
It consists of all-natural minerals and chemicals that are completely safe. It is devoid of salts and substances that are damaging to the body and surfaces. It can be safely used on all types of surfaces like decking, new concrete, pavers, parking areas, and so on.
It creates a skid-free, slip-free surface on ice and snow for walking, pet, and car traffic, as well as other applications. It works at any temperature and with any thickness of the ice. It is highly absorbent and abrasive, making it ideal for cleaning up messes caused by animal feces, body fluids, oils, paints, and other viscous substances.
Non-corrosive and non-conductive – won’t harm your vehicle or furniture in the backyard. The packing of Walk-in ice makes it handy and easy to carry, even in a handbag or gloves compartment. You can use it anywhere, giving you instant protection from slip and fall.
It keeps you safe from the dangers of walking on ice by its dual-action method- absorbers and grippers. It has seven geo-crystals from across the country. These crystals have absorbent and gripping properties. To create a non-slip surface, the ‘absorbers’ drain the water while the ‘grippers’ grip the ice/snow. Vehicles, people, animals, and pets can all use the treated surface right away. Walk on ice is made of micronutrients. They allow the product to be swept into the lawn or garden for greener grass and a lush garden in the spring.
The solution to your slick porch and walkways troubles could be right in your handbag now. So, why go for something messy and arduous to clean when you have a clean and easy traction medium in your reach. Keep a container of Walk on ice with you wherever you go out in slippery ice and have complete protection.
