Things you never thought you'd find in....

...the wash machine

I live in a dorm where we all share a few machines. I just went down there to do my bi-weekly loads at 2am as usual and again as usual, all the machines have other peoples' crap still inside. So I'm emptying one machine that's just a single set of sheets and I hear something hard hit the bottom. I peer in to find........a very large Toshiba remote control. I want to leave a sticky note "well girls, I found the remote!"

Also, once I opened a machine only to find that some freshman tried to wash a large number of winter coats and one of the down ones caught on the agitator, ripped to shreads, and covered the inside of the machine and all the other clothes with sticky wet feathers.

The weirdest thing I found once was the car keys. The remote zapper thing never worked again after that lol.
The usual coins, money (thank god for plastic currency ), reciepts, and the remains of pocket tissue packs and packs of Extra chewing gum These last 2 are why the washing machine is MY domain.

Maybe it was a cold/cold cycle

Perhaps. Or perhaps they 'Are Not Made of This Earth". Since typing the original I have sent hubby out to buy some.

Well that's the last time I eat M&Ms.

I don't think I ever found anything that unusual in a washing machine, other than a couple of occassions when I opened a machine and found someone's white washing had all turned pink due to the presence of a bright red sock.

I don' think I've ever found anything odd in a washing machine either. But my sister once lost her wallet with all her money and cards and everything in it. It was missing for about a week and then one day she found it in the bottom of the oven

I have only found things like coins in the washing machine.
Apparently though when I was younger I used to like sleeping beside the washing machine.

I've put my remote in the washing machine-I found it before I turned the machine on

One time years ago when I had a cat, I put my clothes in the dryer and headed up the stairs, only to hear this very loud sound. When I went back to the dryer and opened the door, my cat jumped out

That happened to me once! I turned on the dryer and head clunk clunk clunk so I opened the door and there was a very dizzy kitty.

We always have to check inside the washer/dryer before we use them because one of our cats has a habit of falling asleep inside them.

Luckily, my cat never ended up in the dryer... that I can remember, anyway.

bammo, how'd your sister's wallet end up in the oven??

I have found perfectly preserved money (paper!) in the washer. Usually 20s. Usually mine. Booby pins, hair clips, coins, a bottle of advil, earrings, pens (baaaaaaaad idea), and a pack of mentos. I threw the mentos away.
