Surviving the washing machine by SpongeBob

User avatar
Today I discovered I had accidentally left my headphones for my iPhone/iPod in a shirt pocket that, yesterday, went through a full 40ºC wash cycle... :em: :gmc:

Fortunately they came out of said shirt pocket this morning looking a little bit cleaner but still working perfectly :thumbsup: They seemed to had dried out thoroughly along with the shirt over night and survived their ordeal to fight another day :)

Just goes to show that washing something in a machine (with detergent!) that's not even supposed to be submersed in water can still pull a few surprises :D Any more tales of washing miracles or disasters?
