once had a "recipe" for Ice Melter made with Dawn dish detergent. Could someone help me out?

I had also seen it in Hints from Heloise, but can't find it there now either. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Send answer to vic_jay_pollock@yahoo.c om

You can use bleach to melt ice really fast. Laundry detergent melted the ice also really fast.

mix 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid with 1/2 gallon of warm water and pour it over your steps and sidewalk. The dishwashing liquid helps prevent the ice from re-freezing. To make the ice melt faster, add a tablespoon of rubbing alcohol (or add beer, but really - who wants to waste beer?) to the mixture." (01/04/2009)
