Will the credit card work after washing it?

credit card - credit card is a convenient payment method.
I really dislike my forgetful and careless husband. His wallet was lost and we couldn't find it anywhere. Mom called and told me that the wallet was in his trousers in the washing machine. The laundry was already done. OK, he has a very clean wallet now. I wonder whether the credit card still works after the washing?
