Seems obvious doesn't it

I know, i know....it's really obvious advice. Although, it happened to this kid in Oz. His mum washed it with his clothes. He tried to save it with a screwdriver and BOOM! Well actually more like POP!

Don't put your iPod through the washing machine. And if for some reason you do, don't try to fix it with a screwdriver. That's the advice of fire investigators probing a small explosion that burned a hole in the bed of a Melbourne teenager who tried to perform emergency surgery on his ailing mp3 player.

Heh - everybody knows you should dry a washed iPod in a microwave oven... What was he thinking!?!?

but you can wash

your USB drives. I wash and dry them all the time - I never remember to take them out of my pocket before the jeans go to the laundry. They always come back in perfect working order.

 

Ah, but they don't have batteries. And no buttons I presume.

I think anything that fits in a person's jeans pocket should be wash-proof...

 

wash-proof or idiot-proof?
my 6th grade teacher taught me
electric battery + water + metal screwdriver = bad thing

I agree with Wit

If only Durex would sort out their packaging.
