glue outdoor carpet to tile


I have a property with 50 year old tiles on the front steps. It gets slippery in winter so I want to glue outdoor carpet to it.

Do I need to treat the tile first? Muriatic acid or anything like that?
Then is there anything I should know about glueing the carpet down?
Thank you.

Just use outdoor carpet glue and stick the carpet down. The glue sticks pretty well and if you don't etch the tile you have the option of removing the glue at some point in the future.
