As I sit surrounded by 8 piles of laundry sorted into nice, neat loads (No. I am not exaggerating. I wish I were.), I am reminded of all the things that I have actually washed and dried in my good old Kenmores.
Things that have survived a trip through the washer and dryer . . .
A tube of Chapstick
My Sam's card
My credit card (Yes. It still worked . . . unfortunately for me!)
money (Both bills and change. Actually, the bills come out all nice and hot and crisp. If I was OCD, I would probably do this for all of my money.)
A beer bottle cap
A nail file
A tape measure
Rocks from the yard
Things that have bit the dust in my washer or dryer . . .
A Crayola washable marker (Ha!)
Assorted crayons. . . (The washer was no problem, but getting the melted crayon wax off the inner dryer drum was maddening!)
A Buzz Lightyear figurine
My lip gloss
My cell phone (Special thanks goes to Ethan on that one!)
A Pamper ( One that started out clean thank goodness!)
Gum (I wanted to shoot myself on that one.)
And now, I guess I just want to know . . . Am I the only one that this happens to? Have you all washed and dried crazy things too??
