I ran an Instax through the washing machine. Here’s what happened.

These things are resilient!

I left the Instax in the back pocket of a pair of slacks, so it had some protection when it went through the washer and dryer. Overall, there wasn’t much damage to the front side at all, just a bit of rounding to the corners, and the chemical strip at the bottom was bent. On the back, the plastic backing was damaged a bit, peeled up from a couple of corners, but overall, it survived with not much problem.

I wonder how an Impossible Project Polaroid Originals would fare…

I’m not going to purposefully try it… I might try an emulsion lift one day, but hope to be more attentive in the future.
