Bare Ground is an all natural environmentally safe co-product of corn, grain or agricultural processing sometimes containing distillers condensed solubles that is added to a base of Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2). Bare Ground is non toxic, water soluble, non flammable, biodegradable and less corrosive than water. A Single Application can last up to 2 weeks - 8 times the coverage of salts! Use on driveways and walkways, decks and porches. Bare Ground can be used as an anti-snow agent prior to a snow storm or ice storm. Bare Ground is also an excellent deicerwhich can be applied directly to an ice or snow pack. Are there any cautions to using Bare Ground? Yes, do not apply Bare Ground when the temperature is over 35 degrees because it can create a slippery surface. Bare Ground sinks to the surface level, melting as it goes down, and spreads out after reaching the surface breaking the bond between the snow or ice and the pavement for an easy and complete cleanup. Bare Ground should be applied about 1 1/2hr. to 2hrs. before a snow or ice storm to be effective in reducing the accumulation of snow. If you choose to use Bare Ground as an anti-snow agent to reduce possible snow accumulation, you will find that a liberal misting can treat a two car driveway that measures 20’ by 50’ plus extra walkways or about 1000sq.ft. Does Bare Ground have a shelf life? No. Just shake the capped container to dislodge any sediments that may have settled and Bare Ground is ready to be used again.
