Options for slippery side steps?

I have an '06 with chrome oem side steps with black plastic grips. It is snowy where I am and they get pretty slick. They are not terrible, but when I am putting the baby in his car seat I would like something better.
Thanks folks.

To clarify I am probably looking for a bolt on type solution.
Something? Anything?

Skate tape works pretty well for other things, it's basically sand paper with a stick backing. You can probably find it anywhere they sell skate boards.

Are you using any kind of dressing on the pads? I find that dressings are too slick, and usually use something like bleechwhite to clean the muck off, and then glass cleaner to keep them looking nice.

Good advise. I would prefer something more course that would work if iced over, but if I don't think of anything else this will do nicely.
No dressing, I just wash em with car wash detergent and water. Though I would like to find a bottle of that back to black stuff to make sure they stay nice are new looking.

back to black is still pretty slick. Bleech white, a tooth brush and some towels will clean it to black without getting slippery.
