Clean Water Tip

DE-ICERS

De-icers such as magnesium chloride have fewer adverse environmental impacts to our water and are not as corrosive as sodium chloride. Check labels to choose a de-icer that fits your conditions and apply it early and sparingly.

What you can do

Take Action

Try using all natural/non-toxic household cleansers! Materials like lemon juice, baking soda, and vinegar make awesome cleaning products, are inexpensive, and environmentally-friendly.

Words of Wisdom

Don’t be put off by people who know what is not possible. Do what needs to be done, and check to see if it was impossible only after you are done.
