Cup in the laundry?

So, this just occurred to me when I was doing my laundry before I left college last week. Has anyone's cup ever had to survive the washing and drying machines? I ask because I almost accidentally scooped my cup in its little bag up with a pile of socks, but luckily realized it was there and put it away before accidentally tossing it in the wash. Has anyone washed their cup in the laundry on accident? Did your cup survive? This is all hypothetical, because I know we're supposed to boil for 5 minutes, but I'm not sure how hot a washer gets, and I know a dryer gets REALLY hot, so I just figured I'd ask. Any thoughts?
