Washable Apple iPhone earbuds

Washable Apple iPhone earbuds

Posted to Flickr on 24 January 2009.

One weekend my Apple iPhone headphones went missing. I looked and looked and could not find them. And then I had that "surely they didn’t go through the laundry" moment. Oh no!

Indeed, I discovered my poor buds in a pair a jeans that had gone through the washer and the dryer. I imagined them submerged in soapy water and then tumbling through heated air and thought, "There is no way these things still work." However, with a tiny bit of hope I plugged them in.

They still worked!
