My Granny would operate the sissors on the edge of a china plate for a quick fix.I often do this the coffee mug is always at hand.

I tried this on a pair of scissors used for cutting paper. Before sharpening I tested them on some fabric-very dull. Then I cut foil I had used for baking. It worked! Cut cleanly through fabric. Mahalo for sharing this tip.

Now this is a tip I can put to work today! I have so many scissors that need sharpening. Thanks

Sand paper does the trick also. I use an emery board for keeping my cuticle cutter nice and sharp. Works every time!

I keep a package of sandpaper with my sewing stuff.
When I think my scissors are getting a little dull, I just cut through the sandpaper a few times
and my scissors are good as new...
and they are at least 10 years old.
