  • Long ago my wife washed some of my clothes along with hers, and turned all my underwear pink.
  • Apart from melting polyester in the clothes dryer? Erm, dying my white t-shirts pink, because I put a red towel in with them.lol
  • The FIRST pair of jeans I so proudly bought with my own money... put them in bleach and then was called away... they were blotched and unwearable.
  • Hell I don't know. Those tits in your avatar are screwing up my thinking..lol
  • Probably some three weeks ago..... I left a Pilot V-5 pen inside the dryer, it blew up and damaged four Dockers pants, three shirts and a few pieces of underwear.
  • I bought a really nice shirt from New York & Co. a while back. I don't usally get my clothes from there but they were having a huge sale. So I got a really cool yellow shirt. Two days after I got it I had accidently thrown it in with the dark colored clothes and it got all dingy looking. I was upset. I still wear it around the house but I can't look awsome in it anymore. =(
  • When I was in college mother knit me a beautiful sweater from wool that she had spun by hand from my parents's sheep. I accidentally washed it on hot. I cried and cried.
  • changing the colour from white to red on everything in there
  • Splashing bleach on the clothes that I was wearing at the time. The bleach caused my light/khaki-ish pants to turn pink where it hit.
  • Back in 1997, I washed a pair of my rayon work pants, and they shrunk about 7 sizes. I couldn't fit them over my arm after that. LOL. I really liked those pants. :o/
  • I once had to do the laundry for my girlfriend. I put some of my clothes in there too, but I forgot that I had an ink pen in one of my pockets...so when I took the clothes out of the washer...everything was stained with ink. My girlfriend almost killed me. Actually, she cried because her clothes were ruined. I felt pretty damn bad.
  • I think it was when I put something far too big in the washing machine. The washer started making a terrible noise. The water & soap started over-flowing. It was difficult to get the item OUT of the washer, & what a big mess there was!
  • The cat jumped into the dryer when I was not looking. I turned it on, and heard thump....meow....thump....meow. Cat is just fine :)
  • This was 50 years ago...first marriage. Did the laundry and my then-husband's white underwear came out pink because a red sock had somehow found its way into the whites. To his credit he laughed about it and didn't say anything to make me feel bad. :)
  • When I was young I ironed a nylon shirt. It melted right through the shirt and stuck to the iron. Oops.
  • Never had one. Thank goodness.
  • I've had a few times where some colors bled or I got blotches from I don't know what in the washer. I washed a blouse that was dry clean only once (and I didn't know it) and I shrank it. But, the most frequent problem I have is occasionally, a tissue gets overlooked in a pocket, and then I have bits of tissue stuck to everything in the washer. Uggh!
  • washing underwear and socks with a red sock - everything turned out pink! You know what's it's like having to wear pink underwear??
  • Tinting my Tae Kwon Do uniform pink the morning before testing for my 2nd degree black belt. Thank God for bleach.
  • The same as everyone else's. . . getting something "red" in with the whites and making the whites "pink"!
  • when the kids were babies, putting on a white wash and not noticing there was a baby nappy in there (the pampers kind).. when i took the washing out EVERYTHING was covered in tiny gel like bobbles... it was horrific, and everywhere, i couldnt get rid of the stuff! lol
  • Nothing much. I think the worst thing that could happen to me is for my washing machine to break after it gets all my dirty stuff wet, but before it washes any of it. I'd be so P'd O at having to wring out all that dirty laundry, and then either finding places to hang it or take it to a laundromat.
  • When my mother used to wear incontinence pads. Sometimes I didn't see them when I did the laundry, then there would be that cotton lint all over everything.
  • Believing the "color-fast" on the label of a red shirt could be trusted. Indonesian textile manufacturers lie! :-) +5
  • I washed a wool sweater... it came out of the washer a child size... I just threw it in didn't even bother to read the label... OOOPS
  • We went away for a funeral for about a week. While we were gone we had hard wood flooring put down in the kitchen and laundry room. We got back. She went food shopping and I threw a load of laundry in the washer and went to do some other errands. I came back and there was a flood in my house. The flooring installers had not properly attached the water hose to the washing machine and water was just spewing out while I was gone. It was raining in my basement. Had to get a new hardwood floor, new carpet in the family room, new ceiling in the basement and new carpeting in the basement. Total price was about$17,000. Luckily, insurance covered it. Does that count as a laundry disaster?
  • The dryer caught fire and burn up the entire laundry room. We ended up with smoke damage through the entire house.
  • That would be putting my red lacey underwear in the wash with my husbands white chef jackets, trust me his workmates noticed!
  • A tube of chapstick went through the dryer. The hot grease splattered all over a pair of Docker's in tiny spots, so they had to be thrown away.
  • The East Hoboken Laundromat Massacre of '73
  • White jacket with deep red smoke bomb in the pocket. Dyed the whole load a deep, deep pink. It was kinda pretty.
  • One of the plastic bits inside the drum came off and in turn shredded my favourite monster magnest t shirt, i wouldn't say i was that materialistic but was heartbroken when that happened :(
