Where To Get Winter Ice Melt In Twin Falls

If you didn't stock up before the latest storm in the Magic Valley, finding ice melt can be near impossible. But not impossible. I was scrolling through Facebook Marketplace and found a post from someone who had apparently gone down to Utah with a big dump truck and filled it with salt from the Great Salt Lake.

They say that the salt is natural and pet friendly. You can bring your own 5 gallon bucket for them to fill for $10 or they can supply the bucket and salt for $15. They are in the parking lot near Garibaldi's at 677 Filer Ave in Twin Falls.

Many Stores Are Out Of Ice Melt

I looked online and didn't find a store in Twin Falls that said they had any ice melt bags except Smith's on Addison. Their website says they have 20 lb. bags for $4.99. I even checked at local auto shops and they say they are out. If you are in Jerome though, their Autozone could still have a few bags.
