What’s NOT to like about cheese? I mean, there are dozens of varieties of it, it’s tasty and it goes with everything from wine to nachos. And now it could save your life as well.
In a brilliant fit of innovativeness, Milwaukee, WI is considering using cheese brine to de-ice roads in the winter. Brine is a liquid waste product left over from cheesemaking that officials suspect can be added to rock salt and applied directly to the street.
So they’re killing two birds with one stone- getting rid of something they’d have to pour down the drain otherwise and making drivers safer. And, the acid in cheese brine apparently counteracts some of the salt’s corrosive nature.
