Money Laundering

Washing Money

I did this by accident and then realized it’s a great way to make sure your money is clean in these uncertain times…

The bills and change had been in my jacket pocket and went through a hot wash with soap and bleach plus a long hot drying time. No germs left on those babies!

I also cleaned out the drier filter and found another $7.31. A bonus for my work… :)

    Wonder if you can microwave the bills. The only thing a microwave would truly be good for.

    • I wondered that too… I don’t have the resources to properly test it. Microwaving works by vibrating molecules, particularly water molecules, and I don’t know if the lipids and protein in the virus would properly vibrate. A very interesting question. Anyone…?

        Hi Walter, you are correct that home microwaves emit radiation tuned to the vibrational frequency of water. Some bonds in the lipid outer layer or protein core of a virus may also vibrate, bend or stretch at the same frequency. This movement at the atomic scale produces friction, which leads to heat, just like rubbing our hands together. In order for it to efficiently heat anything there needs to be liquid water available, so I imagine that putting moist bills, cotton gloves or anything else (non-metallic unless you want to break the microwave) in the microwave could result in enough heat to deactivate the virus.

        Chemistry rules!!

    Another case of where people should actually be thankful for a federal government function and the appropriate expertise and testing (how many people are aware that it’s actually not made from wood pulp paper?). :-)
