In my unfortunate event, the fact that my SanDisk c150 mp3 was still in my pocket slipped my mind. I then proceded to wash and dry my clothes (you can probably see where this is going) The mp3 was cleaned spotless (including it's functions and files) Where can I go to get this repaired? I've heard of repairers but who?

These are never easy situations to experience, but I can only advise you to disconnect the iPod Shuffle for the computer, make sure it is turned to "Off" mode and allow it to sit in a place where there is sunlight or heat for at least 3-4 days untouched.
I have heard this process being done by a few folks for different iPod/iPhone devices, so hopefully this will work for you.
This is however, the only suggestion in such cases where an electronic device like your iPod shuffle has been subjected to moisture or water.
If this still does not help, you will more than likely have to take the iPod Shuffle in for service at an Apple-authorized iPod repair center or unfortunately replace it with a new iPod.
I hope this helps and you are able to get your iPod back to functionality again.
Tha the same case with my son's Mp3 player , washed it in the washing machine and even it was delicate washing cycle it did not show any sign of life . :-( . The only good thing about it was that it came out cleaner , and my son got newer player .
Having said that, I have nothing to add but I'm sorry but you have to buy new one .
Any device that gets wet may be ruined easily. It is very important that water doesn't touch the battery. unscrew the back and open it up, remove the battery and wipe it down. Prop it up in front of a hair dryer that is on cool setting (DO NOT USE HOT SETTING) for an hour or so and then put it together and try again. I've done this with mp3 players and cell phones after dropping them in puddles, showers, my washing machine, and even a tub of teriyaki sauce once and as long as the battery is completely dry and the back is completely dry when you put it back together you will be alright. You can also put the device in the freezer for a while and that should condense the water and help dry it out a bit.
Did you follow the instructions for the firmware update? (holding the select button while inserting the USB cable) The firmware s/w SHOULD detect the device by itself, regardless of existing drivers. You may want to use the firmware image linked here
