Original Magic

It’s Magic!


See why everyone is talking about Ice B’Gone Magic!

Original Magic is a highly effective ice melting product.  Original Magic works faster and lasts longer, saving you 30%-50% in salt use.  Original Magic is less corrosive and environmentally friendlier.

Original Magic is safer to use on concrete, is less corrosive to metals, is safer for curbside grass areas and plants, and continues to melt ice to -35°F when used as directed.  Original Magic starts out as ordinary rock salt, which is then treated with a liquid agricultural by-product of the distilling process blended with magnesium chloride.

  • Original Magic is economically superior. Because it works better and lasts longer,less Ice B’Gone Magic is required to displace an equal amount of ice or snow than with any other ice-melter, at any price.​​


  • Original Magic works faster and lasts longer at much lower temperatures than ordinary rock salt.

  • Original Magic has a working temperature of -35°F, whereas regular rock salt is ineffective below 18°F. This is a net 53°degree gain in working temperature, similar to calcium chloride, without the adverse effects.

  • Because of its residual effect, snow and ice will not bond to the pavement. Black ice is virtually eliminated.

  • Original Magic is less corrosive than distilled water. Unlike plain rock salt or calcium chloride, independent tests show Original Magic to be completely less corrosive.


  • Unlike calcium chloride and ordinary rock salt, Original Magic is safer for people to handle.

  • Original Magic is environmentally friendlier, releasing far less chlorides into the environment than either plain rock salt or calcium chloride.

  • Original Magic is pet friendly.​

  • Bulk Original Magic prices are typically 30% to 40% more than ordinary rock salt, although only half as much is required.


  • In addition to these material volume cost advantages, Original Magic offers distinct benefits to every snow removal contractor, large or small and regardless of whether services are billed hourly, per visit or flat rate/seasonal.


  • Contractors who bill hourly or per visit will especially benefit by shutting spreader gates to one third normal. Since less material is used, fewer refill trips are required. Fewer refill trips save time and fuel.

  • Original Magic turns brown, which means the customer can
    see material being applied.

  • Flat rate contractors will make fewer visits.

  • Apply a medium/heavy application of Original Magic during
    snow flurries or light snow events, and watch the Snow
    “burn off” with no plowing. Customers don’t care how you do
    it or how long it takes, they just want to see clear pavement.

  • By eliminating the use of sand, every contractor will realize
    great savings from reduced spring clean-up costs. In the meantime customers will appreciate the absence of sand tracked into buildings and cars.

  • Contractor equipment will last much longer and with less maintenance expense without the extreme corrosiveness of rock salt and frictional damage from sand on chains, bearings, etc.


  • Original Magic will not harm grassed areas or horticulture when applied correctly. Therefore, incidental damage to customer’s property is dramatically reduced.
