When you accidentally wash 1000$ bill


#1

I notice when you accidentally wash the 1000$ bill in the washer it messed up the shiny stripe and some places wont accept it anymore because they think it’s fake. Anyone else notice this problem?


#2

laundering money is illegal :grin:


#3

take the bills to a Bank of Taiwan branch. Explain what happened. They’ll probably check the serial # and issue you a new one, or maybe just give you a new one without checking.

For me I just hang them dry and then use iron to flatten these paper bills :grinning:


#5

I would die


#6

I can’t wash the skid marks out of my shreddies so I don’t know how you managed to wash out a strip that is meant to be able to survive multiple machine washings…

Cold water only washing machines don’t work!

No, I’m pretty careful about that. I only miss the occasional $1 coin, which I’ll then hear rattling around my machine. Anyway… so a couple clerks have rejected your power-bleached $1,000 note? Okay. Just try using it at another place. Eventually some indifferent slave-wage kid who dgaf will accept it. Also, check your pants pockets a little more thoroughly in the future before washing. Or just never keep notes loose in your pocket to begin with. That’s a good way to lose them.

Or try the bank. :slight_smile:
