Hi you all,
Do you have scissors that just don't cut like they use too, bring them back to live with this quick and easy trick. You won't believe how easy and quick it is, to sharpen your scissors with a regular glass. :-) Enjoy this tip, I know it will serve you well in years to come.

No it will not damage the glass. I've been doing this since I was 5 years old for my Mom. I took a embroidery class a month ago and I used a glass vase with pretty roses still in it at first people looked at me as if I was "strange" but their frowns turned into smiles really quick. All the scissors we had to work with did not want to cut and we needed sharp scissors to work with. The ladies was amazed and VERY VERY happy :-) I bet they will never look at a vase the same way anymore.

Thanks so much for this tip! I bought sharpeners from the store and they never sharpen the scissors enough! I'll definitely try this!
