Casa Quickie: Just Say No to Slippery Steps

If you plan on hosting any dinner parties or holiday gatherings, the last thing you need is a guest with a head injury. Unfortunately, slippery, icy walkways and steps are often the culprit in Winter accidents. Stop slips before they start by making sure to keep your steps free of ice and snow. First step: Always shovel any ice and snow away as soon as it lands on your steps and walkways. Then, if there's still a problem, use sand or kitty litter to provide traction. Using rock salt is also an option, though if the temperatures get below 25 degrees, it won't work. Do you use these methods, or do you have another way to keep your steps slip-free?

I have an aunt who lives up north. If she knows there is going to be a lot of snow fall, she'll lay a blanket out on her porch steps. And she'll put some rock salt underneath the blanket just in case. Then all she has to do is yank the blanket up. Works for her.
