What is the best way to use MELT Calcium Chloride Crystals?

For best results, plow or shovel snow accumulations prior to spreading MELT Calcium Chloride Crystals. Spread evenly, using a cup, scoop or spreader to apply. Since MELT Calcium Chloride Crystals are more effective than other ice melters, use only 1/4 to 1/2 cup (2 to 4 oz) per square yard. Remove melted ice/snow slush. Apply shortly after snow begins to assure easy removal of snow and prevent ice buildup. Removal of thick ice may require higher application rates to penetrate and undercut the ice layer.
