Solution for Ice on a Deck?

What can I use to prevent slipping on ice on my deck. I have heard that salt is harmful to carpets, if you carry it back into the house on your shoes. I want to also use something that is safe for animals (just in case they should eat it).

Thanks for any replies.

I have not tried this but have heard that cat litter will work...would like to know if anyone has tried this. I do know its a good idea to keep some in the trunk of the car incase you get stuck on ice ..sprinkle some around the tires an you will get some traction.

Sand works fine, but it's a little messy if people/pets track it into the house.

Salt of any kind, rock salt, or kitty litter.

Cornmeal works and it will not hurt your carpet and is safe for any animals that may eat it.

You can use clay cat litter.

cracked corn works good, and the birds love it after the snow melts off. You can get it at feed stores.
