From dummies to rashers of bacon, new research by appliance repair specialists Go-Assist.co.uk discovered a large selection of strange and interesting things found in the bottom of washing machines and hidden within the filters.

Tissues are the number one shared experience by Brits, with 56% of people surveyed saying they have found Kleenex confetti sprinkled on their wet clean clothes.

In contrast to the devastating disappointment felt upon finding the remains of tissues, the second most found item is cash, bringing much happiness and joy... assuming it’s still in good nick!

17% of survey respondents said they’d found their jewellery in their washing machine, including several expensive wedding rings.

Other small items spotted in the machine’s depths include drill parts, lighters, a spoon, pens and pencils, lego pieces and nail clippers.

In a rather unpleasant admission, 3% of Brits said they’d found baby nappies and a few had found sanitary towels. 18% also stated dog or cat hair as often being collected at the end of a wash.

9% claimed to have put their electronics through a spin cycle, often not surviving the ordeal. These include mobile phones, a bluetooth headset and even an Xbox controller. Perhaps gadget insurance isn’t such a bad idea after all?

The strangest items noted include bacon, clothes hangers and a bowl.
