Getting Your Car Unstuck: Salt, Sand, or Kitty Litter?

At Mercedes-Benz of Hanover, we recommend that you have an emergency kit with you inside of your vehicle whenever you are driving. When winter comes around, you should add to this kit. One of the most important things you can add is something to put under your tires if you get stuck in the snow or ice. You've heard you can use sand, salt, and kitty litter, but which one is best?

As far as price goes, kitty litter and sand are better. Salt can be expensive when bought in large quantities. Sand and kitty litter are fairly cheap and can be found everywhere. Salt also may mess up the inside of your vehicle if its spills because it is corrosive.

If you are unsure if you should use salt, sand, or kitty litter, give us a call at Mercedes-Benz of Hanover in Hanover, MA. We would love to discuss this with you so you can make the best choice.
