What is the silliest thing you have accidentally run through the washing machine?


I recently washed a thick paperback book - didn't hurt the laundry, but some pages joined in a kind of paper mache. It was a good book, too.

    Your hand! I'd completely forgotten about wringer washers and my mother's first washer was that type. I never thought of a hand going through; I'm so glad your hand was not ruined! Daily life was surely exciting before the Internet - maybe more so.

    Oh, no! Any of those things could cause damage and receipts and the wallet would be pretty important to lose. My sympathies to you!

    Crayons can be nasty. A friend experienced melted crayons all over his car seats one summer day.

    That was expensive lip gloss, wasn't it? Thanks for the good lesson.
