If you must launder your money, do it carefully, advises the Bank of Canada. The bank says it has tested the notes for durability against common household products. “Repeated contact with substances such as bleach and ethanol resulted in damage that could make the notes unrecognizable as legitimate money,” says spokeswoman Amelie Ferron-Craig. “We therefore do not recommend using these substances to disinfect your bank notes.”
