    Uh, that doesn't even work as an instructable... all you are doing is changing the container, no skill to it. Although it's a good idea, there's nothing to it. To win any contest or get a good rating, you're going to have to try a bit harder, so change it, ad something and maybe I'll change my rating. For now, halfa star.

    But I see the point. I had a pack of trident and it got through the washing machine... this would really keep 'em dry.

    Mini Altoids tins are not waterproof. They will help with an occasional splash, but not immersion. They will definitely not help in the washing machine.

    being the person i am... i had to test this. And pdub420 is correct. Neither Mini Altoids or regular sized altoids are waterproof. However while i have left individual pieces of gum in my pants pocket, so far i have noticed when the altoids smalls is in my pocket. So while it wouldnt help in the washing machine, hopefully the sturdier heavier case would not actually make it into the washing machine. :)

    Put ridiculously strong magnets on each side of the opening to your washing machine. Maybe that will help stop the tin from making it in. ; )
