Mortons Salt


Knucklehead moment of the week. 

We have been having a lot of snow and ice the last few weeks.  And at my house, we ran out of rock salt to clear the driveway.  So I went to the store about bought the pictured bag of Morton Salt Pellets.

When I got them home, I noticed that these pellets looked like a mixture of horse pills and moth balls.  A long, white, cyclinder.  But they were from Mortons, who makes salt, right?  So I spread the pellets all over my ice covered driveway, and waited, and waited, and waited some more.  No melting, no change whatsoever.

After further review, I notice what I had done.  I bought Mortons Water Softner Pellets.  Not rock salt.  Instead of melting the ice, I was making it softer and easier on the drains.

I am such a moron.
