Sand, Salt, or Litter: What’s the Best Choice?
Did you know that you can use sand, cat litter, or salt to get you out of a bind in the winter? They are all great to have in your car in the winter because if you get stuck, you can just throw some around the wheels of your car and get enough traction to get unstuck.
If you choose to go with salt, make sure that it is not table salt or it will not work. You need a good rock salt that has big chucks of salt to give you some good traction. It will melt at temperatures above 12 degrees Fahrenheit, though which is something to keep in mind. Cat litter will work as well, but it can tend to get messy due to the clay in it. Sand is probably the best choice.
