True confessions

Years ago, before I knew better I decided to wash the running rigging in the washing machine. Not having the sage advice given above I just dumped them in, put in the soap and let her rip. No mesh bags, no tightly coiled line to interfere with the washing action.

Result: a very clean, multi-colored rat's nest that took hours to untangle.
