A Melted Mess

Ever heard that song, “Mr. Mom,” by Lonestar? He sings something like, “diapers melt in a Maytag dryer and crayons go up one drawer higher.” Yeah, well, lets combine those two events and you get this lovely image.

While it may appear that I murdered someone, this is, in fact, melted crayon. Red crayon, of course. Red crayon that melted over an entire load of laundry. Swell.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever melted in the dryer? (My mom found a dead frog in the dryer once, thanks to my big brother. I think the crayon is probably less horrific….)

    The Mr. Clean Eraser is now your best friend?

    My husband constantly forgets to clean out his pockets – so pens, sharpies, random bits of wires and plastics, screwdrivers, glue… oh my goodness I could go on and on… A former roommate was in theater and forgot to empty her theatrical makeup bag before washing it… they were doing a horror play at the time – Dracula meets Frankenstein or something – so it was like a murdered Christmas tree in there!

        Yep – and not just regular over the counter kind… it was theatrical… the kind that you just about have to take a sander to your face to remove… I wanted to kill her! How the heck do you forget to empty the make up bag before you wash it???? Ugh! lol

    try throwing a bag of Gummie Bears in the dryer – the residue melts all over the dryer – next to impossible to remove.

    When I was 6 I decided a good place to store my library books was in the dryer. Probably should’ve told my mom before she did the laundry…

    Gum – a nearly full pack. I don’t know how I didn’t notice it switching the laundry to the dryer. UGH! little pieces of red (or course) gum everywhere on the clothes and dryer.

    Worst thing ever were leftover green crayons in dryer when drying dress white uniform law enforcement clothing and needing to be in court the following day. The cleaners got a very big tip that day!

    My daughter wanted to hide her roller skates from the rest of the kids. In the dryer, and I had been hanging clothes out all summer, so she forgot where they were, until it rained one day and I turned the dryer on before looking inside just to freshen it a bit. Bang, clunk, bang. thud. What the h? is that? From 5 y/o kid, MOMMY, you found my roller skates! Thanks Denise.

    my cat got as far as being closed in the dryer, but thankfully she started freaking out before I turned it on.
