I use pickle juice at work for two things:

1) an ingredient in a "special" sauce for hamburgers.

2) Floor degreaser. It's free, bio-degradable, and perfectly natural. You won't high a buzz off the fumes. I just pour about a cup on the floor after I sweep. Slop-mop the juice around, then come back and dry-mop the floor. My chef likes it, as he doesn't have to spend some serious money on chemical degreasers, nor does he have to keep and maintain a MSDS sheet on the product.

brine some chicken legs and thighs in the leftover pickle juice, then grill them.

If you soak your penny collection in it, it will make all the pennies nice and shiny.

Take some Kirby cukes, slie them, add julienned carrots and toss them into the jar. Let it sit for a couple of weeks.
