Show of hands. Who has washed their AirPods in the washing machine?

I just did it tonight. Could not find them for my workout tonight, and finally went to look in my pants that I just ran through the washer this afternoon. I hung dried them, due to trying to get some wrinkles out (Duluth pants get really wrinkly in the dryer. especially the fly flap - then the zipper gets exposed when you are wearing them, and its embarrassing when people glance down that way...).

Anyhoo. There they were, in the pants pocket. They were only minimally damp inside, around the heads of the AirPods. Nothing seemed to get down to the connectors. I tried them for my workout. The left one worked! I dried it all out and swabbed with a q-tip. Now Im charging the base which only has 10% juice.

Color me impressed. It survived the washing machine!

Nope. Closed. Just the zipper exposed. Almost as embarrassing.

My Airpods would need to be off my person to escape to the washing machine and that simply does not happen.

Not yet, though I just washed my card key remote through the wash.

We've come close a few times. My wife or I would be quickly gathering clothes from around the house, on floors, hanging on doorknobs, back of chairs, etc., to do a load of laundry and not check all the pockets. Especially that small 5th pocket on jeans. We find chapsticks, candy wrappers, pebbles, shells, and the occasional AirPod.

Yup, but they are wired ones. Still works, but the sound is terrible.

No, but I washed my Plantronics Voyager Pro BT headset (at least) once. It survived, but the water apparently caused a short and totally depleted the battery. The headset worked fine, but the battery life was never the same.
