How to sharpen scissors: an ingenious handy hack
Dull scissors can be a problem when you need to use this tool quickly, and it has been in a drawer for a long time and you haven't kept an eye on its condition. If there is no time to carry the scissors to the workshop, you can use a lifehack that will help to make them sharp again.
As learned OBOZREVATEL, the lasting effect it will not give, but will help to sharpen the tool at the moment when you need. To do this, you will need only aluminum food foil.
Tear off a sheet of foil from the roll and fold it in triplicate - this thickness will be optimal. Now you need to cut the folded foil with scissors. The thicker the blades of the scissors, the more movements you will have to make. So for small manukir scissors will be enough 10-12 cuts, stationery scissors for paper will become sharp enough after 10-15, but kitchen scissors will need about 30.
Instead of foil, you can also use metallized food wrappers, such as candy wrappers. An old metal sponge will also do. The main thing is that it should be clean enough.
This flyhack will give only a temporary effect. Scissors after such sharpening will quickly become dull again. Therefore, later they should still be taken to a workshop, where a specialist will not only return the blades to sharpness, but also tighten the bolts and balance the tool if necessary.
