Magic Salt is a highly effective ice melting product.

Magic Salt is safe to use on concrete, is non-corrosive, does not harm curbside grassed areas or plants, and continues to melt ice to below -35F. Magic Salt starts out as ordinary rock salt, which is then treated with a liquid, agricultural by-product of the distilling process blended with magnesium chloride. This patented liquid is trademarked as Magic Minus Zero and dramatically transforms rock salt into a new de-icing material.

Magic Minus Zero is also marketed under the name of Liquid Ice B'Gone. These products are identical. All references to Magic Minus Zero also apply to Liquid Ice B'Gone.

Magic Minus Zero is a highly effective de-icing agent made from a patented blend of magnesium chloride and condensed distiller solubles . It is non-toxic, bio-degradable and has a corrosion index lower than distilled water.

The benefits and results of treating your salt stockpiles or your sand/salt stockpiles with Magic Minus Zero are amazing!


Magic Salt is regular rock salt that has been treated with the liquid Magic Minus Zero at a rate of 8 gallons per ton of rock salt.

With a simple motorized pump and tank system, Magic Minus Zero is easily applied to bulk rock salt stockpiles, to transform this corrosive, potentially destructive and inefficient material into Magic Salt.

Magic Salt is a highly effective ice melting product which is non-corrosive, safe for concrete and brick and environmentally friendly.

The following is a list of Magic Salt features and benefits:

  • Magic Salt is economically superior. Because it works better and lasts longer, less Magic Salt is required to displace an equal amount of ice or snow than with any other ice-melter - at any price.
  • Rock salt applications are reduced by 30% to 50%
  • The need for sand in most circumstances is virtually eliminated.
  • Magic Salt works faster and lasts longer at much lower temperatures than ordinary rock salt.
  • Magic Salt has a working temperature of -35°F, whereas regular rock salt is ineffective below 18°F. This is a net 53°degree gain in working temperature, similar to calcium chloride, without the adverse effects.
  • Because of its residual effect, snow and ice will not bond to the pavement. Black ice is virtually eliminated.
  • Magic Salt is non-corrosive. Unlike plain rock salt or calcium chloride, independent tests show Magic Salt to be completely non-corrosive.
  • Magic Salt will not damage steel doors, thresholds, equipment, carpets, flooring or concrete. In fact, it neutralizes rust!
  • Magic Salt will not cause concrete to split or any paved surface to degrade in any way.
  • Unlike calcium chloride and ordinary rock salt, Magic Salt leaves no visible residue.
  • Unlike calcium chloride and ordinary rock salt, Magic Salt has no corrosive characteristics at all.
  • Unlike calcium chloride and ordinary rock salt, Magic Salt is safe for people to handle.
  • Magic Salt is environmentally friendly, eleasing far less chlorides into the environment than either plain rock salt or calcium chloride.
  • Magic Salt is safe around vegetation, people and equipment.
  • Magic Salt is water soluble and biodegradable.
  • Magic Salt has no adverse effects on grassed areas, plants or shrubs.
