Non-Toxic Salt Buster™ From GET Microsolutions Stops Salt Damage to Lawns and Shrubs -- Naturally

Unique Child and Pet Safe Formula Binds to Road Salt, Preventing It From Entering Plant Root Systems

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) - Each winter over 15 million tons of de-icing salt is used on the streets and driveways of the United States. With some 70 percent of Americans residing in areas that receive at least 5 inches of snowfall annually, salt-related damage to lawns, shrubbery and other plant life is a headache for millions of homeowners. To combat the problem, many consumers resort to over watering and the use of topsoil, seeding and fertilizer each spring. Finally, there's a natural, non-toxic solution to preventing unsightly grass burned brownish-yellow before it is damaged by harsh road salt. Salt Buster™ (, a unique, child and pet safe natural formula effectively stops the harm caused by salt and minimizes damage already visible.

Developed by Global Environmental Technologies, a leader in environmentally friendly and effective home and pet care products, Salt Buster™ protects lawns and plants by tying up the salts and removing them from soil solution. By preventing salt ions from reaching the fragile root system of grass, salt is rendered harmless until it is flushed away by watering or rainfall.

"Salt Buster™ can both prevent salt damage if applied in autumn prior to snowfall and minimize it after it occurs and its effects are visible," Scott Dyer, co-founder of GET commented. "When applied as part of an early spring care program, the organic ingredients of Salt Buster encourage the natural ability of grass to minimize the invasion of other species while neutralizing road salt and preventing it from entering plant root systems. And like all GET products, Salt Buster is safe for your children, pets and the environment."

Founded in 2005, Colorado-based Global Environmental Technologies Microsolutions produces environmentally friendly and effective home and pet care products that are non-toxic and safe for use in homes with children and animals.
