How to best spread/apply Icemelters?

Many have been asking how to best spread/apply icemelters?

Icemelters are best spread by using some mechanical means such as a spreader. Using a spreader guarantees even consistent distribution. While deicers can be spread manually using a scoop or by hand, it is not recommended. Spreaders are available in all sizes, from small hand held varieties to large dump truck attachments. Many users of ice melters like to have their product colored to make it easier for the person doing the spreading and to help over use of the product. Colored deicers can easily be seen by people, assuring them that it is safe to walk on the ice.
