Incredible 65p household item that can de-ice your driveway in SECONDS – everyone has some in their cupboards | The Sun

BRITS have been raving about a new hack that de-ices driveways in seconds – and it costs just 65p.

The UK is currently under ice weather warnings and roads, driveways and footpaths up and down the country are extremely slippy.

The Met Office have even warned that people could be injured this weekend if they fail to spot black ice.

And the Department of Transport has already warned Brits not to use hot water to clear away frost – as it can create more ice.

But now a new hack has revealed that people can use an everyday household item to clear their pathways.

Brits don’t need to fork out a fortune on de-icer as kitchen salt will do the same thing.
