Quick Tip: How to extend the life of your scissors.
Whenever I feel my scissors start to stick and feel a little gummy, I know its time to clean them. Cleaning scissors is super easy and one of the most effective ways to keep them around for as long as possible.
What you need:
- Dirty scissors
- Rubbing Alcohol
Step One: Grab your supplies (I have two bottles of rubbing alcohol--obviously you only need one)
Step Two: Soak the Q-Tip in a little bit of rubbing alcohol (until the tip is sufficiently wet)
Step Three: Use the Q-tip to clean the blades of your scissors. Press down as hard as necessary to get off all the sticky stuff. Repeat as much as needed. I usually go through two Q-tips for each pair that I clean. Remember to clean the narrow sides of the blades too!
Now you can have awesomely clean scissors, and they'll last longer and work better!
