Six ways to sharpen dull scissors

dull-scissorsI wouldn’t use the following methods on scissors that you’re going to do hairstyling or major surgery with, but for everyday scissors used for everyday stuff these all work fine:

  • Cut through fine sandpaper
  • Cut through several thicknesses of aluminum foil
  • Cut through steel wool or soap pads
  • Cut through an emery board
  • Cut against the neck of a glass bottle, as though you were trying to cut it off.
  • If the blades are sticking together try cleaning them with nail polish remover.
