Sand, kitty litter, or salt: Which to use?


Winter driving presents the hazard of having your car stuck in the snow or ice. There are products on the market that can help you when this happens. These products are:
  • Kitty Litter
  • Salt
  • Sand
Kitty Litter

This product can be used to increase the amount of traction to an area when it is spread over the surface. It will soak up water and degrade over time and is prone to freezing.

Salt

Salt can be used to melt snow and ice used to the chemical makeup of the compound. It can also change the pH of soil which makes it harmful to plants that need a specific pH environment to live and thrive in.

Sand

Sand can be used in the same manner as kitty litter, but sand will not absorb water quite as readily as kitty litter can.
