After a detail (with video) and more serious look at the new Canada polymer $100 banknote, I decided to have some fun and put the brand new $100 to a money “laundering” test. I washed & dried it in a dryer to see what happen.
Non-scientific test results:
* The fold marks are not much worst than regular use.
* The polymer $100 feels noticeably softer after heated up in drier but it feels ok and strong.
* The metallic strip and the holograms are still working great.
* If you accidentally leave your $100 bills in your jeans pocket, they will survive a wash and dry cycle easily!
