Spreading salt (or gravel) on snow or ice helps it melt faster and provides some much-needed traction. Redditor TheGuyThatAteYourDog shows us an easy way to spread salt evenly.
If you live in a place where you get snow and ice a lot, you may already have a salt spreader, or you may just prefer to use a snow shovel and get a bonus workout while you clear your driveways and sidewalks. But if you don’t have a spreader, salt can be hard on your hands and your gloves, and it’s certainly not easy to spread from a 40 lbs. container. If you have a flower pot around, the small hole at the bottom makes spreading salt a breeze.
