You want to make and save money online, but what exactly is lurking on that money? I thought it would be fun to see just how much bacteria is on the money you handle everyday. I was inspired by a recent study showing that 90% of money in the US has trace amounts of cocaine. If 90% of our US currency contain cocaine just what else is on our money? In my small way I will attempt to find out.

In this experiment I will test $1.00 bills the dirtiest bill of our currency since they are handled most often from 7-11, Safeway (Vons), Cash Machine, and from my wallet. I will then swab each bill and let bacteria grow. I hypothesis that 7-11 will have the most unclean cash, but lets find out for certain!
