To sharpen scissors, simply cut through metal scrubbing pads and continue until your scissors are sharp. I have done this for years, and it works well for me.

I have also used wax paper or tin foil, they all work well. Great suggestion!
I'm a retired carpenter who had to sharpen all kinds of cutting tools, powered or otherwise. I think this idea about snipping things is only an urban rumor. Never worked for me, which I expected.
Sharpening with scrubbies or tin/wax paper never worked for me either. Professional sharpening at your local hardware store is inexpensive and the most effective for lasting use. If you need a quick fix for the short term, cut strips from sandpaper. If you have sticky stuff on the scissors, remove with goo gone or acetone (even nail polish remover) but usually alcohol works just as quickly and is handy for me.
