There are many ways to vanish a dollar bill out there. Which is the best way to do it? One of the simplist ways to do it, is to put it in a pay envelope and burn it. The problem I see, is without a pyrotechnics license (in CA), it would be illegal to do or the place that you are performing doesnt allow fire. Another way, is to use a bill tube, but it doesn't seem natural. At least the pay envelope seems more natural. A bill switch to a flash bill would work, but fire is again used in the effect. A thumb tip could be used too. So. are ther any other suggestions?
