Ice on the road--what's the solution?

Post  pinhedz on Sat Dec 28, 2013 7:59 am

The traditional remedy is salt.
Right now there is a layer of salt all over my car.  

I know there's another way.

Here's the blurb:

"Beet juice is becoming a very popular snow and ice fighting tool. It is organic, reduces corrosion, melts to very low temperatures and reduces the amount of material needed for application."

"A concoction of beet juice and salt that is kinder to concrete and metal is getting mostly favorable reviews from a growing number of states and cities looking for more effective ways to treat ice- and snow-covered roads."

Is this red beet, sugar beet, some other beet? So long as it's not coated with Beetlejuice, you should be alright.
