How Salt Works

Salt works by lowering the melting point of ice.
When salt mixes with water or moisture, it creates a saline solution (salty water).
In the same way as it needs to be really cold for seawater to freeze, this saline solution will freeze at a lower point than fresh water. The temperature at which it freezes will depend on the salinity of the water (how salty it is).

FAQs:

Does salt work on snow?
Is it better to put salt down before or after snow?
Can I keep my salt for next year?
Which salt works better - white salt or brown salt?
Where does the salt come from?

The media published much about the risk of being sued for clearing snow, during the winter of 2010/11.  
The Government issued guidelines on clearing snow, stating : "people walking on snow and ice have  
responsibility to be careful themselves.". It actively encourages clearing snow as part of your social responsibility  
especially if your neighbours are elderly or disabled. Just don't make the area more slippery than it was before and follow  
the Snow Code.
Snow, Salt, Slips and Silk
Business Owners have different obligations. There is a clear Duty of Care placed on the operator of  
the business to clear the publicly accessible areas of their premises.
