Blood Money

Yesterday, while I was making an excellent beef stew, I accidentally soaked 5 twenty dollar bills in blood (don't ask). So: will handling the money make me sick? Will it make anyone else sick? At this point it's dry and, er, crusty, kind of like an artifically weathered prop, like a treasure map for a movie. Gross and cool all at once. So do I wash them again or use the bills as they are?

My two cents -- I would just rinse them off and then hang them dry. That is more to assuage the icky factor than any real health hazard. Incidentally, I'm assuming the blood part is related to the meat juices and not an unfortunate incident with you and a kitchen knife. In that case, I'd tend to yourself first. -Beth
