DIY: How to Sharpen Scissors


I have one big fetish… and that is… TOOLS!!! Seriously, I just love buying them. Whether it’s for paper, crafts or even for house use like a set of screwdrivers, soldering iron, spray paint and even baking tools, I just love buying all the tools regardless I’ll use them or not.

Now, one tool that is very essential in my studio is the scissors. But then, despite how sturdy it is, it gets to a point that it needs some sharpening. And how I hate using the whetstone. It sounds eeekie, plus if you don’t know how to use it, it will make the edges of the scissors ugly. Gladly, I discovered over the internet another way of sharpening your scissors. It’s very practical and easy at the same time.

Here are the materials you’ll need:

• Scissors

• Old cylinder bottle

• Newspaper or Wax paper

The instructions:

{1}  Simply place the bottle in between your scissor blades. Then try cutting the bottle just like your cutting a paper. But don’t put too much pressure while cutting it. Repeat this constantly and closer to the handle until you think it can cut sharply already.

{2}  After your done with the bottle, run it though on a newspaper or wax paper to soften the blades.

And your scissors is good as new. All you have to do is keep a bottle with you and there’s no need to buy new scissors again, unless it’s broken of course, hehe.
