that if you run a Lexar Jump Drive through the washer and the dryer, it will still work? I may have to let Lexar know that. Doubt that they would make that a selling point

chapstick does ok in the washer but does not fare so well in the dryer? I do now. I also learned not to wash my wife's jeans with my pants and shirts without checking her pockets. Sad

Found out years ago that if the clothes are polyester all you have to do is rub crisco into the lipstick stains was again and it all comes out:)
I know this because I left a tube of red lipstick in my uniform and it stained all of my uniforms and my mothers!!! LOL! I had the joy of rubbing crisco into them for several hours! Wink

My wife goes through all teh pockets before washing. It's amazing what the kids will leave in there. And she has a jar full of change and bills that she has found. Leave it in your pocket; you lose it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
