Sharpening Sewing Scissors Cheaply

I am looking for a good way to sharpen my scissors without going to a pro. I have tried the types that sharpen knives, but those work poorly. Thanks.

You might try googling the technique: sharpen your scissors yourself.

The best way to sharpen scissors is to save all of your used/discarded aluminum foil. Cut through the foil with dull scissors until the foil is in tiny pieces..Viola! Your scissors will be sharp! Good luck! Be sure to save one designated pair of scissors for paper Only, therefore the other pairs will not dull so quickly.
