Bee-dubya-ell's post about the amorphous lump of washed paper in the pockets thread made me wonder about the other daft things we've washed. Most of us must have had to piece together soggy banknotes but what else will you own up to?

Washed my pocket clock more times than necessary... only stopped working when I stood on it.

Sooz,

US currancy can be washed without any problems- it has a high enough fiber content to act more like cloth than paper. Bills do have a tendency to fade a little, after multiple washings....

A ballpoint pen - what a mess! And a red sweater in with the whites which were ever after pink. I don't take laundry nearly as seriously as I should.

I just hate it when I miss a tissue in a pocket - I do check them, but occasionally miss one - and it always seems to be in a load of dark coloured clothes. They end up with little white bits all over them which take ages to pick off. Grrrrr!

I find that kitchen roll is more resilient in the wash. It doesn't disintegrate like tissues - so I use it instead!

No harder than tissues if you pick your brand!

Thanks for that information Bruce - I must remember to only leave US currency in my pockets :-)

How many guys accidentally washed the scrap of paper with the phone number of the woman who could have changed your life forever, for better, but of course, you never saw again?

I just checked out my pocket thread extension, gave it a pull and had the entire contents of my pocket fall down my pants leg. Thanks a lot, guys!

Fell for THAT one, didn't I?

A .22 bullet. Coins. Lip balm. A highlighter with water soluble ink (hah!). Ball point pens. A chocolate bar.

The bullet went through okay, as did the coins. They fell out and ended up in the washer. I do not suggest drying the lip balm, the ink containing things, or the chocolate bar.

Not too long ago I took a pair of pants out of the dryer, and found my wallet still in the pocket. Fortunately, most of the cards were plastic and survived intact--can even still be scanned in ATMs and other machines. The money was nicely laundered and still worked fine. And I needed to update the photo of my daughter anyway. I did get a new wallet, though.

Aloha,
Mark

I often forget the business cards in the pockets of my shirts, the result a lot of washed fluff all over my favourite T shirts.

What about the things that didn't survive?
A colleague of mine absent mindedly put a condom in her pocket after a contraception lesson. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when she tried to explain to the washing machine repairman as he removed it from the pump!

Five pound notes shrink. This can cause headscratching in shops.

A nest which a wren had built in a pair of jeans that were on the line to dry. Mud splash from a sudden rainstorm necessitated their rewashing, so I tossed them back in the washer without realizing they had a bird's nest in them.

Someone should start a "daftest place for a birds nest" thread!
(We had a blackbird nest in the top of a pile of evaporating basins in our school chemical store - cramped our experimental style for a few weeks!)

Washing them is fine, but thin plectrums come out of the tumble dryer all corrugated.

I don't know how a mouse got into my laundry bag, but it did, and it got washed to death.
