Quick Scissor Fixes

Scissors a bit dull or hard to open? 
Try these quick and easy steps before buying new ones.

Cut through several layers of aluminum foil folded tightly to sharpen the blades.*

Cut through sandpaper to sharpen (This will also diminish ruts and dings in the blades)*

Use a screwdriver to just slightly loosen the screw that holds the blades together.*

No screw or screwdriver? Try this old tailors trick: Open the scissor wide and carefully run the blades and intersection flat against your hair. The oils from your hair may help slightly lubricate the scissor just enough to get through your project.*

*Remember to wipe the scissor blades and handles before using again.
