What Every Day Cary item have survived a trip through the washer and dryer ? 

My six foot tape measure, pen light and a cigarette x USB port power supply.

I love my cargo pants pockets and I thought I went through all of them.

Coins, paper money, my nitro pills except for the last time. I think the washer was having a heart attack and ate them all including the bottle.

My Swiss Tech Utili-Key has been through the washer multiple times.  It's also been through TSA checks at least 20 times and nobody ever noticed.

No......seems your washer turned them into funny pills.  :rofl:


I'd say my old timer knife has been washed numerous times.

I have this curse of "out of the house" pants, "in the shop" pants, and "lazy" pants so I am really bad. The dumbest was my Zippo but the most common are the little folding utility knives. I tend to drop them in a pocket and... they're gone.

The knives just need a quick dry and oil but boy does one feel like a fool drying, refilling, and replacing the flint on a Zippo that got the laundry treatment.

Package of chewing gum. Makes a sticky job after the dryer. :-[
