Icemelter and new concrete (12 months old!)

A question we frequently get is “if Icemelter is safe to apply on new concrete?”

The answer is no, as newly poured concrete needs time to cure and settle. The application of icemelter on concrete less than 12 months old may weaken the concrete structure making it more susceptible to damage in the future.

In order to reduce slipping, falling and liability risks, we suggest applying sand on the new concrete slab to give it some traction.
For more information on icemelter and concrete, please refer to our Icemelt Resource Centre.

Christmas Reindeer Poop Recipe


1st Pour malted milk balls or Milk Duds into a plastic bag.
2nd Attach Poem below:

I woke with such a fright when I heard Santa call… “Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!” I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts, those nasty reindeer had left “little gifts.” I got an old shovel and started to scoop neat little piles of reindeer poop! But to throw them away seemed such a waste, so I saved them, thinking – you might like a taste! As I finished my task, which took quite awhile, Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he sped off in the sky… “Well they’re not potty trained, but at least they can fly!”
