Intro: Pimp Your Currency
I recently offered a small prize at my local makerspace in the form of crispy twenty pound notes. Accordingly I asked my manservant to check down the back of the sofa for some cash.
Disappointingly he could find only rather scruffy notes. In rather irritated mood I told him to go away and crisp them, at which point he confessed that he didn't know what I meant. Fleetingly I toyed with the idea of dismissing him from my service and having his family sold for medical experiments, but it is hard to get good staff nowadays, so I decided a good ticking off would have to do.
I have prepared this instructable, in case you have also run into this problem.
Step 1: You Will Need
20 pound notes
An Iron and Ironing Board
Step 2: Preparation.
Give your notes a preliminary flattening. A force of approximately 23.97654 newtons will be adequate.
Step 3: Starch the Notes
Spray the notes with starch BOTH sides. do not overdo it though, we want crisp here not rigid.
Re-iron the notes.
Step 4: Results
Here we see some freshly crisped notes.
Now you too can always have a pristine note when you need one.
