Question:


Will my credit card work after going through the washing machine?
-Clumsy


Answer:


Careful you don’t run afoul of any money-laundering statutes. What were you trying to buy in your washing machine that you couldn’t pay for with cash? OK, a more serious answer: Try to buy something with it and see if you succeed. Just make sure it’s a low-priced item in case the card doesn’t work and you need to fork over cash. If you have no luck, call your card issuer and assuming there’s no specific category for washed, rinsed and spun cards, say you lost it; the card is lost to you, anyway.
