    Another good tip. You can also use isotropic alcohol with a teaspoon of shampoo in a gallon container. Add water to top. You can clean anything with this. It is great for counter tops, Windows and most anything else.

    Good idea, my steps were slick for a week until the ice melted. I will use this next time they forecast freezing rain here in northern OK.

    it didn't work for me. as soon as it touched the cold cement it turned into ice.
    Also I didn't measure just guessed. So that could be the problem.
