Sharpen Scissors with Steel Wool

I know I have about 3 dozen scissors running around here. To keep them sharp, I buy a box of 00 steel wool from my local hardware store and cut through it with the scissors. This allows your scissors to sharpen themselves, and it also beats paying $15.00 to have them sharpened.

I use this trick too, only I cut the SOS/Brillo pads in half - I sharpen the scissors and lengthen the life of the pads! Why use a whole pad, when you only need a little bit and that way, too, the whole thing won't rust and go to waste!

Pretty sharp, Gem, pun intended! lol! Mom of Towers has a great point, too. Sharpen your scissors and double your supply of steel-wool pads in one go!

I'm an elementary art teacher and I wonder if this would work on the hundred or so school scissors that I have?
