Using Cheese To Make Plastic That Cleans Itself? Leave a Comment / One Room Schoolhouse / cheese, Fungus, plastic, Science, self cleaning plastic I came across this interesting article the other day and I thought it was worth sharing. Scientists have discovered a way to use a fungus found in cheese to make a plastic that cleans itself. I am simply amazed at the things that scientists are coming up with these days. This was a very interesting read and generated an interesting discussion in our homeschool today. What are you discussing in your homeschool these days?
