Item # XXXX
Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is contained in a windowless containment cell in Site [x]. The door is to be kept locked at all times to prevent accidental use of the object. Signs reading “Authorized Personnel Only” and “DANGER: Keep Out” are to be posted on the door. No clothing of any kind that is not actively being worn is to be allowed into the cell.

All instances of SCP-XXXX(a) are to be destroyed through incineration when discovered.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a silver, [redacted] brand top-loading washing machine. Its anomalous properties do not manifest until a subject uses the machine to wash an item of clothing- hereafter designated as SCP-XXXX(a). Incidences of SCP-XXXX(a) remain inert until the subject attempts to wear it.

Once the subject has donned SCP-XXXX(a), the object will then adhere to the subject’s skin, and begin to shred the flesh and muscles, while restraining the subject from removing the items in question, however, it has been shown that other individuals can apply enough force to remove the clothing from the subject. Severe injuries are common, and SCP-XXXX has been linked to at least [REDACTED] deaths.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was found in a dormitory building at [REDACTED] University, Washington DC, after a number of students were admitted to the emergency room with severe injuries consistent with being flayed alive, claiming their clothes were the perpetrators. MTF Iota-10 (“Damn Feds”) were dispatched to investigate, learning from survivor Bill T[REDACTED] that he had done a load of laundry that included the hooded sweatshirt that had attacked him several days before in the dormitory laundry room. MTF Psi-7 (“Home Improvement”) were then dispatched to the dormitory building, locating SCP-XXXX when they discovered the corpse of a woman slumped over the machine. It appeared as though she had attempted to turn an incidence of SCP-XXXX(a) inside out before placing it in the washing machine, activating its anomalous properties. SCP-XXXX was removed and contained at Site [X] without further incident.

Addendum: Incident SCP-XXXX-1

On 4/15/REDACTED, two D-class personnel, D-90353 and D-4324, were on laundry duty. As the main laundry room was already in use, it is believed that one of the D-class personnel used a stolen override code to gain access to SCP-XXXX containment cell and used the item to wash a load of D-class uniforms, resulting in 15 casualties, including 8 deaths. D-90353 was one of the deceased, and D-4324 was immediately terminated once cleanup was complete.
