In this instructable, I will show you how to tell if a dollar bill is real or fake, using household materials.
You will need: A dollar bill Magnets
Fold the left side of the dollar bill about 1/4 the way in. Unfold to a 130 degree angle.
Slowly bring the magnets close to the 1 in the top left corner. If the dollar bill moves toward the magnets, the bill is real.
The dollar bill has magnetic ink which is attracted to the magnets. This is done to prevent counterfeit bills.
