Using sand, salt, and kitty litter on patches of ice

If you have ever been stuck in a driveway or on the side of the road due to icy conditions, then you know how important it is to have a product on hand to help you gain traction to get you on your way.

Some people have kitty litter in their trunks, and they think that this inexpensive option will fare as well as salt or sand. This is simply not the case. Kitty litter, when used for automotive applications, is typically used to contain the spills from fluids such as oil and antifreeze due to its ability to absorb fluids effectively. This does not translate well to getting you unstuck. Sand and salt are better options, but each have their pros and cons.

Salt is more expensive and stores in the winter time generally sell out of their supplies. Sand does not melt snow but it is more readily available. Barbour-Hendrick Honda Greenville would like to let our customers know that sand or salt is the way to go to get unstuck.
