There has been some interesting discussion related to washing of banknotes.

Polymer banknotes are not affected adversely by water or solvents that do not dissolve ink. They have a varnish protective layer covering all but the clear window.

I wonder if the issue of washing may almost become a non-issue when polymer bank notes come of age in 100 years time. ::)

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

What is the typical attitude toward this and the behaviour of collectors and numismatists in places like Australia and New Zealand who have now had polymer notes for 20+ years?
