Using Beet Juice For De-Icing Roads

Beet juice is useful when de-icing roads. Using beet juice mixed with salty brine is a more effective way to keep the roads safe during the winter. Reportedly New York state is planning on using beet juice this winter to melt the ice on their roadways.The combination of beet juice with a salty brine liquid not only reduces the damage caused to roads by salt alone, it also lasts longer by lowering the freezing temperature of the brine, so the number of times it has to be reapplied is lower.
