Strength of the British Pound…

…really comes out in the wash. Literally. Thankfully, British bank notes are now so designed to survive a good old wash cycle, coming out intact if, at times, a little crumpled. So I confirmed once again the other day by forgetting to take a £5 note from my trousers before putting them through the machine.

It is said that most notes today are tainted with traces of illicit drugs, so this has to be the ultimate in clean money – until I put it back in my wallet.

Other things that have been reported to be this robust include Compact Flash Cards and DCs.
