    I had to watch £120 go through a no 6 cycle a while back.
    It survived, heck I even ironed it.
    Money laundering gags all been done now ta.

    Washed the tv remote at the weekend!

    Years ago I washed some clothes for my then next door neighbour, because their washing machine had broken down.

    On removing them I found a syringe.

    Wasn't too bad in the end, was about 2 weeks after the 3G came out so got a free upgrade by signing up for another 18 months, plus I got £180 for the washed one (honestly described) on ebay. Initial discovery of it clinking in the washer was a bit stomach churning...

    Money - £20 it came out all clean - stuck it over the radiator and it was fine...

    I've washed stupid things like chewing gum always comes out all gooey lol

    I returned the clothes in the mud on thier front garden. Many sweary words came my way. I informed her what I had found. Then walked to the front door and offered to insert the syringe in her neck. All the neighbours were out because of the noise.

    Turns out it was her brothers. He left a short while later bleeding. from his nose.
