Or use cheap salt from bargain supermarkets - 13p for half kilo @ Lidl, I also use it to kill weeds on the paving without poisoning half of the local wildlife, and my dogs so I always keep a stock of it in.
Don't recommend rock salt, although it is grippier before it even starts to melt, it makes a mess when you inevitably trail in into the house onto the carpet :-(

This stuff probably works marginally better, but I really couldn't be bothered sending awayand waiting for it to be delivered, when I can get something cheaper at most supermarkets when I am already going there!

This stuff is brilliant and does not corrode! I have an out door metal staircase and it is lethal in winter. this stuff melts away the ice in seconds and unlike "cheap salt" does not damage the metal.
Salt corrodes metal AND concrete. this stuff keeps your paths clear for up to 24hrs and wont harm plant life OR wildlife. it also doesn't leave a gritty white film everywhere so there isn't anything to be trailed indoors. It's also fully biodegradable. seriously can't recommend this stuff highly enough.
I sprinkle some out the nigth before as it stops the ice even forming.

These products are often sodium formate or sodium or potassium acetate based. I would still prefer to put salt on my food though ;-)

For most people, using either would make little difference, but on metal stairs, I agree and would recommend stocking up too. In fact I would go a lot further than that and recommend getting an industrial epoxy resin based abrasive coating on the metal treads too (just as councils are doing at road junctions), as in such cases, it doesn't even need to be icy to be lethal. Not cheap, but broken bones aren't a good trade off! Wooden decking has become similar death trap in the wet and ice too, and I have had two acquaintances come a cropper with that in recent years, breaking bones, fortunately nothing more serious resulted.

Salt does no significant damage to concrete, as in paving slabs though, on 20 year old slabs, 11 years of salt use by me shows no damage at all; it is only the metal in reinforced concrete structures that are a problem, so I would avoid it on the roof of a multi storey block of flats. It is fine on Tarmac too as seen every winter, strewn on roads to stop ice taking hold too! :roll:

In any case, my drive gets some salting carried on from the ROAD, dripping off my car so this only adds to it, all of which has the added benefit of killing off a good bit of the moss and algae, for which purposes it gets a couple of applications of salt especially in warmer weather, and a pressure washing if it is lucky :-)
