How to Make a Paperclip Magnet

2. Rub the magnet into the paperclip
Move in the same direction, not back and forth. Use the same quick movements you use to light a match. Continue rubbing the paperclip with the magnet 50 times, as fast as you can.
3. Touch the paperclip against the smaller piece of metal.
