Air freshener may look like the desirable beverage moonshine, but what sort of moonshine smells like air freshener?
According to an incident report from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, 57-year-old Neil Berry of Appling came home on Sunday night to find his wife, 59-year-old Sandra Berry, in his home. The couple are reportedly separated. Mrs Berry told Mr Berry that she drank something from a plastic bottle under a cabinet labelled “Apple Cinnamon.” She believed it to be moonshine. Mr Berry informed her that what she had drank was in fact, car air freshener. Mrs. Berry reportedly sat down because she had become dizzy. While Mr Berry began researching the effects of drinking air freshener, Mrs Berry reportedly collapsed from her chair.

Kudos to those of us who have chosen a less wasteful third option to “paper or plastic” at the supermarket or club stores. Tote bags are reusable, but they can be a pain to tote around. Here’s an upgrade to that planet-saving measure. The Club Cart Lotus Trolley Bag is that rare tote you’ll want […]
