    Default Just Washed and Dried my 16GB Thumbdrive

    Washed and Dried

    It was in my jeans 5th little pocket.

    And it still works.

    Should I keep it? Or not take a chance with a gig?

    Anybody as dumb as me?

    Ideally wash with iso if there's a chance water got inside to the chips.

    I am pretty sure water got all up in that shit. It was in a washing machine.

    Arggghhh. Corrosion could take days or weeks.. or months.

    I wash mine all the time. Money and usb sticks always survive. Phones not so much! Should get in the habit of checking my pockets before washing my clothes.

    idk if u play out live... but theres nothing worse than the insecurity of ur equipment when ur playing live. once i notice something not right about my gear, i dont fk around with it in hopes itll work for next time. cause that next time, ur gear will crap out, and that next time might be ur last time playing at that venue.
