What a way to go....

Put my riding gear in the wash this evening after getting cleaned up. Put it on cold, no fabric softener and while I was doing that a stink bug must have flown into the washer. Just a few minutes ago when I got the clothes out, there was a dead stink bug.

Funny thing, I've seen a tick go through the washer and dryer, and still be alive. I didn't check to see if it had any smell.

Take it easy on yourself, it may have died of natural causes before you started the wash. ;0)

I bet it was pissed at you for washing in cold water. At least in hot or warm water, it would have seemed like a jacuzzi for a bit, maybe.
