Default Washed anything lately?

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

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

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

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! 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!

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

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.
