I was doing my laundry one day and did not check all the pockets in my clothes. I had left five dollar bills in the washer. The paper bills came out wet but were still in-tact. The reason is because the money is not made out of paper. The dollar bills are actually made with a blend of cotton and linen. I left my wet bills to dry by the window and heater. Severeal hours later, the bills were completely dry and crispy, but wrinkled. I took a picture of them.
Have you left your bills in the washer before?
