Tuesday Tip: Cleaning Your Sticky Scissors


Today's tip is short and sweet, but very helpful. I  found this tip a while back 
and can vouch that it works wonderfully. 


When your scissors get sticky from cutting foam tape, 
just spray them with WD40 and wipe it off with a paper towel. 
Works like magic!

I have used Goo Gone also, but will have to try this one for sure. Thanks! I have about 3 pairs of scissors that need a good degunking right now.

I soak mine in vinegar and it works great. Don't have to worry about oily residue.

I use goo gone too, but I saw a tip to use used dryer sheets as well (because they don't tear like the paper towel). Lord knows I've got lots of those!
