Out of all the creative ang pows out there this year, there's a washable one that stands out as the first of its kind in Malaysia

Yup, that's right. You can wash the ang pow under running water!

But why even make them washable in the first place? Well, it's all in an effort to stop the spread of potentially harmful bacteria.

Let's be real, we're well aware of how much bacteria there is on common surfaces such as money notes. So imagine just how much germs are being passed around on Chinese New Year!

Thus Lifebuoy, one of the world's leading anti-bacterial soap brand, was inspired to come up with a clever antidote to this problem. They incorporated the anti-bacterial properties of their soap into paper, which is then formed into red packets.

This definitely comes in handy during the festive season because the last thing we would want is to fall sick!
