Have you ever wondered which is the best product to use in the winter to get added traction for your car? Some say it is salt, while others say it is sand. There are still others out there that believe that it is kitty litter.

We here at Tri State Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Maryville, MO want you to know that all three of them work in many of the same ways, but they also work in their own unique ways. For instance, salt can be pricey and hard to find in the fierce winter months. It does a good job at melting snow and ice but only if the temperatures don't fall too low.

Sand does not melt ice or snow but it does a great job at creating a surface that is sufficient for tires to grip. Kitty litter is affordable and absorbs water, so it is best in wet snow. No matter which one you choose, it is important to be informed about their benefits.
