Torture Test: SanDisk Extreme III 4gb

Don't try this at home, kids.

Left my SD card in a trouser pocket when I did the wash, today. (duh) It went through a full wash and dry cycle...

Survived with no problems...

Cheers...

Nice! I've heard that they can survive one, but not two washes :P

And I'll bet it performs better now after a good clean.

Wash: Warm with detergent...
Dry: Full heat... until the fabric was 90% dry with the remaining while folded on a hanger.

BTW: Trousers turned out great...

Cheers...

Good to know! I use the exact same cards.

Ive often washed usb stick's in the washing machine (left in pockets) and they have came out fine but i never washed a sd card.
