::) I just went to switch my laundry over and found that I'd washed my DVR remote along with my blankets!  I took the batteries out and am leaving the cover off so it can dry out.  I hope it's not ruined.

Buttercup you aren't alone.  I had to take mine back to the cable company.  Luckly they did not ask what was wrong and just replaced it.

Whew, glad I'm not alone!

I hope this one will work once it's dried out, otherwise I'll have to order a new one from DirecTv and lord knows how long that will take to get here.

*** edited to add:  Amazingly enough I just put new batteries in the remote and it works like a charm!  I'm amazed.

Glad it's ok. Is your Kindle hiding in fear?

My nephew washed his cell phone once.  It didn't work after, so you are LUCKY!!!

I accidentally washed a pen last week.  Wouldn't you know - not a spot of ink on anything in the entire load - except my BRAND NEW jeans!  Ugh!

Haha, my Kindle isn't hiding in fear, she always gets put in my nightstand drawer, the remote however sleeps with me most often.  Wonder if the fact that I have a front loading machine had anything to do with the remotes survival?  It wouldn't have been sitting in a tub full of water which has to have been a good thing.
