OK, I need some help here...I found sand by Oldcastle called

Dixie White Play Sand.......

Is this stuff any good? Has anyone heard of it or used it?

I found it at Mejiers Store in Indiana. I just want to know if I should go snatch it up before it's too late.

Thanks,

Mike

Take a bottle of vinegar with you to the store. Pour a little of it on the sand out of a damaged bag. If it fizzes and foams it is the right stuff.
