    I accidently ran a memory stick through my washing machine, I didn't even know and it still works. I also have waterproof ones though the one I washed wasn't water proof.

    They're basically all waterproof. There are no movable parts and once dry, they almost always work fine. I think it was MaximumPC that did a test of 20 USB flash drives and they all worked (after drying) after being put through the washer.
