Keep Ice Off Your Stairs - Simple Solution

Obviously with our new blast of winter weather, we'll all encounter icy stairs. Here's a great, simple solution for the Do It Yourself folks out there on how to prevent the icy stairs.



1. An empty gallon jub

2. 2 Tbs of Dawn dish detergent (this is the recommended brand)

3. 2 Tbs of rubbing alcohol


Begin by measuring the rubbing alcohol and dish detergent into the empty jug and filling it with warm water. Cap it and shake gently - it works best if you're able to let it sit overnight. Shake just prior to using.


To prevent icy stairs, pour the mixture over the front step as soon as the temperatures begin to drop. The solution will not freeze, thus keeping your stairs clear of ice!
