However, I grabbed a pair of joggers to go on the treadmill this evening (they have been through a 40c wash and spun at 1400 rpm, then left to dry on the clothes horse in the conservatory) and guess what I found? Yep there it was, in the pocket.
Amazingly the thing STILL WORKS!!! How does this compare to other peoples experiences of Renault keycards?

My Espace key went through the same thing but in a pair of jeans that were left in the wet washing for about three days. (must learn how to programme that damned expensive white good known as a 'wife')

And yes it still works.
