Oil Dry for Ice Traction

To provide traction on ice in your driveway or for your car, use "Oil Dry." It is usually used to dry up spilled motor oil, but has other uses. It will not break down or mush up like Kitty Litter. It will absorb water, oil, or other liquids. Sprinkle it on ice and it will provide traction. After the Oil Dry drys out, sweep it up and reuse later. Put it under your car tire for traction. It will not harm your lawn or flower garden. When it gets tracked into the house, sweep it up and reuse it, or vacuum it up.

Oil Dry (has other trade names) can be found at auto parts stores, farm stores, and as some stores. The bags of the product may come in forty pound or larger bags. If the amount is greater than your need, share it with your neighbors and or coworkers. Save the environment!

I just googled this product, as I know that the product I have seen used in some shops is virtually identical in appearance to kitty litter. This is a product that is very similar (clay based, as are most cat litters), but formulated for ice removal or to soak up spills in repair shops. I see that the product made for ice traction actually has salt in it, to promote melting of ice on driveways.
