Will my credit card still work if I washed it

In this article we are going to answer the most asked money-related question:
“Will my credit card still work if I washed it?”

There are many answers out there and we gathered the best ones for your credit card and washing machine incident for you:

* What really counts is if the magnetic stripe on the back of the credit card is still working. If the card was bend – this could damage it, but water simply can’t damage the credit card stripe.
* Unless the credit card itself is damaged or the magnetic stripe is damaged it should still work.
* If your washed credit card does not work contact your bank for replacement.
* The biggest problem with washing your credit card is not the water but the high temperature.
* The plastic of a credit card could start melting at above 55C. You are safe in the UK but take care when you go for a holiday in Africa.
* Water (credit card washed) won’t be a problem at all. Bending, heating, and stripe damaging would be.
* More 95% of the people who washed their credit card confirm that it works after that without any problems. So there is a huge chance you are one of the lucky ones.
