Got ice? After finding that my truck has slid halfway down the driveway (several times) and cringing everytime I see my wife going for the mail, and cringing everytime I walk on it (men weren’t made to do splits!), I tossed the sawdust from the shopvac onto the icy surface and it makes a great, biodegradable non-skid! It’s also better than woodstove ash as the particulates aren’t so fine and trackable.

Check it out!

I do it too. It’s great. Dog likes it too.

thanx for the idea! ....if only too late, we just had rain 2 nights ago that melted all the ice away… but I have a feeling we’ll see more ice in our lifetime to put this idea to use

I do this as well on the concrete in front of my shop. Icy steps are never fun!
