This solution is safe for pets. It's basically soap and water with a drop of alcohol in it!

I have used the alcohol and water twice this winter. I left the soap out. It worked good both times. In three minutes it had turned to slush and I just swept it off. Maybe the soap has something to do with it refreezing, since mine never did. I have concrete steps.

I used this last year & it worked very well for me, I didn't spray it on though, I poured it on & made sure I got all the concrete coated really good, it melted 3 inches of ice very quick, I swept all of the concrete & then re-applied to porch & steps again, the ice never stuck to the concrete, all I had to do the next morning was take the broom & sweep it, the ice & snow swept right off leaving no ice, then I retreated it every 3 days. We had Ice, sleet & snow for 3 solid weeks & this solution kept it from sticking the whole time. I just mixed up 2 gal. of it because we are getting our 1st. ice & snow of the season tonight.

If this freezing rain has your steps, porch and sidewalk icy, this homemade ice melt will work great using items you probably already have.
1. One quart lukewarm water.
2. 3 drops dish washing detergent
3. 1 ounce rubbing alcohol
Mix all 3 ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle. Coat icy surfaces with this mixture and the ice will quickly be gone. If you don't have a spray bottle, the ingredients can be poured on the ice.
1. One bathtub warm water
2. Handful of bath bubbles
3. Three fingers Scotch, neat

Mix 1 & 2; soak while sipping 3. F*ck going outside until spring.

Add some beer for quantity. Depends on how much you drink as to size of container to use.
That's a waste of good beer.

Straight 91% rubbing alcohol helps melt ice from decks (wood) & driveways. Worked like a charm!
