How Do I Store Ice Melt?

When the winter and snow season comes to an end it is important to make sure you store your ice melt or deicing salt properly so you can use it in next year’s season. The recommended storage rules include:

  • Store in an airtight, humidity-controlled environment
  • Store away from moisture and air.
  • If the bag of salt is unopened, you should be okay until next season. If the package or bag is opened it is best to move the salt into an air-tight container to avoid the product hardening  or clumping by next season.
  • Store away from sunlight.

Ensuring the salt is properly stored and covered in the off-season will help save you money in having to purchase more next year. It will also decrease frustration when deicing salt is clumped and hard unexpectedly.
