I find glowing,  UWO’s  (Unidentified Washed Objects, for those not in the know) in my washing machine.

This one happened to be a rat ring that was in the pockets of my sons jeans.

How this cheap piece of junk managed to survive an entire wash cycle I’ll never know.

This truly tops the list for the weirdest UWO I have found yet.

I mean seriously, I looked into my washer and it was glowing.

What else have all you mothers -or fathers- found in your washing machines? What’s the strangest object yet? Most messy?

My most messy was wax crayons in the dryer. Short of a blow torch, that rainbow of colors did NOT come out of our clothes.

Happy rainy Friday everyone, I hope you have a great weekend! The sun is supposed to shine so get outside and enjoy it!

    I accidently threw a disposable diaper in the wash and had a huge mess from the explosion of it.

    I have no boys, but I have to admit to accidentally throwing an entire magazine into the wash once – it was not pretty.
