Yeah, the snow is melting with the warmer temperatures. Why am I talking about using salt sparingly? Well, too much salt can corrode the cement walkways and driveways. Also, that stuff can get in your house causing the entry and kitchen floors to get very messy.
So, it is better to use the kind that are small. And DON’T USE TOO MUCH. Make sure there is a mat behind your entry door. That way you don’t have to work so hard to keep the floors clean.
