Preventing Slippery Sidewalks

Last minute company coming and you have a icy sidewalk? A fast way to make it not slippery is to use cat litter or fireplace ash if you have a fireplace. Just spread either along the sidewalk and your guests will have better traction.

Bird Seed! That includes even sunflower seeds, which we feed exclusively to the wild birds. When my husband and I first moved into our new factory built home, we had that now infamous KY ice storm in the winter of 2008-2009. We had nothing else but bird seed and it worked beautifully! As the birds shelled the seeds, so became MORE grip with the shells left behind. And no worries about burning the grass or contaminating the soil with salt.

Lol. the only problem will be with sunflowers cropping up by your front steps. Great idea though.

How do I get the wet kitty litter off shoes and hardwood floors that shoes have tracked into house? If you don't know, I would appreciate being guided to a source that can give me an answer. Thanks
