Salt is often used both residentially and municipally for managing ice. Salt is used to manage ice because brine which is a solution of water and salt has a lower freezing point than just ordinary water. Therefore by simply putting salt on ice this will cause it to melt. It is common for people to spread Salt on their paths and driveways after a snow storm to melt the snow. It is also common for people to lay Salt before a frost or snowstorm to prevent ice from forming. It is not necessary to use so much salt that the ice is completely melted; rather, a small amount of salt will weaken the ice so that it can be easily removed by other means. Also, many cities, towns and villages will spread a mixture of sand and salt on roads during and after a snowstorm to improve traction and to make the road safe to drive on.
