One reader’s tale of running an iPod mini through the washing machine. Did it survive? Click through for the amazing results…


Dear Jason,
My wife ran my son’s iPod mini through a European washing machine– two hours of sodden tumbling at 90 degrees celsius, and then a few minutes clanking around in the dryer. We thought it was done for, since it seemed DOA when removed from the fryer (I mean dryer!) After 24 hours in dry heat and a recharge and reset, it came back to life 100 percent. Amazing, or what?
Always a constant reader,
Peter Harris
