You Found What in your Washer?

Oh laundry.. love it or hate it, it has to get done.  There just seems to be no way around it.  With laundry, pant pockets and kids, well you are bound to find some interesting things in your laundry.

Like the one time Ryder left a wrapped starburst in his white church shirt pocket, made it all the way through the dryer before it was discovered.

I have found a few Legos before, not quite sure why they were in someones pocket in the first place.

And of course there is money, though I don't find this nearly enough in my laundry.

But yesterday, I had a first, something I don't think I would ever find in my washing machine....
Yes a fork.

I was throwing in a load of towels and placemats when I heard a clink.  I turned off the water and started pulling out the towels I had thrown in.  I couldn't see anything, so I stuck my hand in the soapy water that had already filled the bottom and pulled out a fork.

A fork....

I guess one of my kids was trying to clear the table the really fast way.

Wonder if I will find a plate next time?

What is the strangest thing you have found in your laundry?


  1. I don't have kids but I do have a husband. I have found, crimp connectors, electrical wire, screws, screw driver, sunglasses. You name it I have pretty much found it. Not much money for me either. Have a great day.

  2. The worst is when someone leaves a tissue in their pocket and then all the clothes are covered in tiny little pieces of tissue! I hate that!!

  3. Oh that is too funny! I have found a lot of random little miscellaneous things from the boys - candy wrappers, rocks, pennies, small toys, etc. John on the other hand leaves me a lot of fun things - flashlights, screws, washers, cell phones, etc.

  4. Sadly my husband once put his phone. And iPod. through the was. It was a sad sad day when I was folding clothes and made the discovery. But a fork?! That is just too funny!

  5. I haven't found that, but I've found my car keys there twice. Neither time was it my fault other than I didn't check Mark's pockets because they came out of his pants, but they were my car keys both times. Sad thing is I was running late for work both times.
