A pet snake came out of a washing machine smelling Downy fresh.
The snake escaped and wound up taking a bath.
A suburban Chicago family found the snake peeking out when the cycle was done. They said the snake smelled like fabric softener.
Police and Animal Control arrived to handle the snake and took it to the vet. It turns out that the reptile belonged to a 12-year-old who lives nearby. Boy and snake were reunited.
