I did a load of laundry today...cold water...when I opened the lid up to take the clothes out...there it was...my iPod Shuffle:scared0011:

I took the earplugs out and plugged it into my computer right away..they still worked:w00t:

Plugged my Shuffle in to charge...within 10 minutes it was working :w00t:

Have you washed anything that lived?

You are one lucky girl!

I washed up my daughter's lip gloss ( in her jeans pocket ) AND stuck it in the dryer and it remained intact! :scared0011: I don't know how it didn't get all over! God Bless Cover Girl lip gloss!

Yeah, I've done that before.........

Until I got rid of my land line. Now that my cell phone is my ONLY phone, I keep track of it a bit better.

But just a bit..........I still lose it, just not as much! :laugh:

i wash all kinds of things. I don't empty my husbands pockets. I don't know why but i feel like i'm being nosey if i dig in his pockets. if i hear something in there i'll look but i usually just assume he's emptied them. usually he just has $, knife and a knife sharpener.

sometimes my kids will leave gum in their pockets. they each have a little pocket knife w/ a flashlight attached. I think I"ve washed both of theirs a time or two and the flashlights have still worked.

oh and plenty of bud light bottle tops. don't know where they come from but they must be in someones pocket. i've found a bullet a couple different times in the washing machine. same thing-don't know how they got there. at least they didn't make it to the dryer:laugh:

That's nuts...but you might have actually hurt it by turning it on so quickly. You are supposed to let any electronic devices completely dry out before powering them on again. You might want to leave it shut off and put it in a bag of rice overnight or something to help soak up any moisture inside of it.

I dropped my cell phone in water about 6 months ago and it was still on at the time. It was only in there for under 2 seconds and still to this day my phone will just magically shut itself off whenever it wants to, and about 2 weeks ago the microphone just crapped out and I have to use a headset now. :laugh:

I just took it to the gym and listened to it for an hour.It worked fine.You think I should still put it in rice? I only have frozen, already cooked by the way :unsure-1:

Yeah, that rice wont help :laugh:

Uncooked rice is dehydrated so it will suck up any moisture.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, but it couldn't hurt to do it anyway..:Whistle: :)

I washed my sons cell phone THREE times and it still worked! It was one of those cheapie pay as you go $9.99 phones..... of course if I even look at mine sideways it breaks! I think the more you pay for something the easier it breaks! :angry:

If I'm washing it, it's public domain especially when he's left change in his pockets (or his comb, receipts, etc...) multiple times after I've repeatedly asked him to be sure his pockets are empty. Do you know how hard it is to retrieve something once it's fallen down the dryer lint trap opening? :muttering: So now I've learned to check the pockets beforehand.

I have left kleenex in my jeans before and washed it (with something black). :rolleyes: I tried just re-rinsing, but that didn't work--billion white pieces still stuck to clothes. If that ever happens to ya, use one of those sticky lint rollers. :laugh:

I washed my husband's MP3 player twice. The first time I thought it was dead but didn't want to throw it out so I put it in a drawer. A year later I read that you could dry them out. So I took his out, plugged it up to charge for 5 minutes and it came on! Well he had already gotten a new one and I washed it a short time later. This time I let it dry out of 2 weeks, not a year before trying to see if it would work and it did!

After I washed my husband's MP3 player the 2nd time he ask why I don't check his pockets. I said "why don't you empty your own pockets?" he said "well i know 1 thing if it would've been a phone number you would have found it before you washed it!" wasn't sure to laugh because he is right or to be pissed that he would even joke of such a thing. :laugh: or :punch:? hum...

:laugh: That was funny!

Sometimes I have little guys in school who like to "borrow" things from my classroom.......so I have to frisk them once in a while.

this one little man had 2 rubber bands,4 silly band bracelets ( does anyone else have experience with them? they are the local rage! ) part of a pop tart, a small stone, some dead flowers, his mother's contact lens case, some sweet tarts, and.......a Bud Light bottle cap:laugh::laugh:

but no classroom stuff........he didn't have room I guess!

I can only imagine what his mother finds in the wash! He was definately a collector!

hahahahaha! YES!!! I can relate! One boy brought in his entire baby album without his mom knowing. Complete with lots of pics showing EXACTLY where babies come from. I had to call his mom to ask her to come and pick it up. ( We couldn't send it home on the bus with him.) She was mortified!!!!!:laugh::laugh:
