I took about 12-14 ounces of warm Canada Dry ginger ale, shook the carbonation out of it, and added approximately a teaspoon of pure clover honey and stirred. The honey dissolved nicely into solution, but about an hour later, the honey appeared to come out of solution and formed hundreds of… (Show more)

    I notice when I do the dishes or clean the kitchen or bathroom that my fingers and cuticles and beneath my nails turn black, almost like blackberry staining, except it just seems to be in the skin grooves.
