Yesterday afternoon I heard Mrs Dobbin shout from the kitchen "Oh Sh.........t". I thought maybe a red sock had gone in the washing machine in the whites wash. But it was worse than that: my silver iPod Shuffle and my Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS watch just spent an hour getting washed in the machine with my running kit Amazingly the Garmin came out and worked perfectly straight away. It located the satellite signal as soon as I took it outside! My iPod seems to have suffered though It would not play any music or show any lights yesterday so I left it in a warm place overnight. When I plugged it into my mac today the light flashed orange 3 times and then went out. It was still not showing up in iTunes. I left it plugged in for 30 minutes but it still wouldn't turn on or mount in iTunes. However when I plug it in now the orange light comes on for 15 seconds before flashing 3 times and going out as before. Has anyone else washed their iPod? Did it survive?
