MARY REICHARD, HOST: Consider this a public service announcement.
Please do not launder or cook your money.
Someone in South Korea learned that the hard way. This person feared COVID-19 contamination, so he or she put a whole lot of cash in the washing machine.
Not a good idea. Only some of the clean—but now damaged—money could be exchanged for new bills. That out of about $20,000 total!
And someone else tried to disinfect his cash in the microwave. You can probably guess that result.
Consider yourself warned!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
