BOT gives advice on disinfecting cash

The Bank of Thailand (BOT) has advised people on how to clean banknotes and coins to ensure they are not contaminated with Covid-19 virus.

 

The BOT said that people could disinfect the notes by soaking them in soap solution or dishwashing liquid for a short period. The notes should then be rinsed with water before being gently dabbed with a cloth and placed under the sun to dry.

 

The central bank advised people not to clean banknotes with washing powder or bleach, or by baking or boiling them, which would damage the notes.

 

Furthermore, the BOT said that people should use digital payment methods wherever possible, to avoid touching banknotes and coins which may be contaminated with the virus.

I want to use credit card for every transaction, but only the mall or big companies accept the payment. Most of the small businesses accept cash. Difficult for cashless.

If you really want to clean your bank notes effectively, just iron them. That is enough heat to destroy the virus.

My wife has been doing this cleaning of banknotes for 2 weeks now, but she has always viewed banknotes as 'dirty' so I am not surprised.

 

To be honest we are hardly spending any money right now so not many notes to clean.

 

Is a discussion about money laundering allowed on TV? 🙂
