Does money get cleaned ever?

    Currency doesn’t get officially cleaned with the exception of being washed in your jeans accidentally. There is no formal schedule to washing currency, but currency does get retired.

    There is not yet a “currency disinfectant” on the market (for bills). Paper currency is virtually impossible to safely clean without damaging the integrity and value of the bill. There appears to be a patent bought back in 1994 for an invention to address this need, but it expires at the end of this year so not likely it will be on HSN anytime soon. Apparently there is a formaldehyde for disinfecting books, papers, etc, albeit a lengthy, scientific process and no mention of testing on bills.

    The most efficient and hygienic way of handling money is to clean your own hands when done.
