How to Sharpen Scissors

Here is a tip to sharpen your scissors.  (Now I have not tried it yet, but I hear that it works).

Grooming Scissors

  1. Get a 12-14 inch strip of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  2. Fold it into 8 layers
  3. Use your dull scissors to cut as many thin strips of foil as you can (preferably 25)
  4. That's it!  You should have sharp scissors
*If you are using standard weight aluminum foil, just fold it into 16 layers instead and follow the same steps.

Hope this helps!


  1. Never tried it, let us know if it works :-)

  2. Mrs Q, I am so glad I read your blog today as I have so scissors that need sharping. That is what I like about blogging, all the new things I can discover.



  3. I just might need to try this. It seems I have quite a collection of scissors, in practically every room in my house! I usually take my scissors to the sewing store to have them sharpened. It would be wonderful to be able to do that at home. Thank you for sharing the tip.

    Oh, by the way, I just *love* the image that prefaces this post. You always choose such beautiful images to adorn your posts. For me, that is one of the great pleasures of blogging!

    I hope you have a blessed weekend! :)

  4. What a great tip! I am going to go find my 10 pairs of dull scissors and my Reynolds Wrap right now!

  5. How interesting...! We'll have to give this a try...

  6. I hope it works, ladies--I have yet to try it still! And thank you, Miss Linda. I have fun picking pictures for my posts :)

  7. I have tried this and it works to a certain extent. I'd probably have my sewing scissors professionally done though.

  8. Wow, I need to give this a try. So easy.

    I know it's a late, but I want to feature you in Domestically Divine. I hope that's okay with you.

    I think you're lovely and would like other women to know you.

    Be blessed,
