Our front and back door entrances are like one long sheet of ice. I didn’t want anyone coming to our home and taking the chance of falling………and…….at my age, I look at that ice and think hips…. broken hips. I couldn’t think of any way to melt the ice so my next option was kitty litter for traction. I went to the store and purchased the cheapest sack I could find.
When I got home, I sprinkled it all along the path leading up to our back door.
Today, however, I used the front door to go out to the mailbox and that path is literally ice…..a nice thick layer of ice. You guessed it, out came the kitty litter.
It works really well for traction but every time I step out the door I’m reminded of this commercial. Just click on the link below.
Yep….freshens with every step. Although the kitty litter I purchased isn’t the same brand as the one in the video, it definitely has a real flowery smell. When I scatter it along the paths, the flowery scent is pretty strong. Thank goodness the smell dissipates after time.
