- Fill a clean, plastic bucket with 1 gallon of hot water. Add 2 tablespoons of Dawn dish soap and 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol to the warm water and mix thoroughly with a long-handled spoon. Use the original blue Dawn dish soap that does not contain bleach.
- Pour the hot, soapy mixture into a clean garden sprayer.
- Use the garden sprayer to soak the icy driveway with the Dawn dish soap mixture. If needed, repeat the process until you have covered the entire driveway in the soapy mixture. Alternatively, dump the mixture directly on the driveway if a garden sprayer is not available.
Dawn dish soap does not freeze at below zero temperatures. It is inexpensive and will not damage any surfaces you put it on, like rock salt can.
