Scissors - a tool for cutting, consisting of two cuts, converging in closely spaced parallel planes.

Knives can grind almost everything, but scissors, and most do not even imagine how they do it. Many people even think that it is impossible to restore them to their former acuteness, and they simply dispose of them. The fastest super-tool for sharpening scissors is very simple and does not require any special tools, and there is a material for sharpening in every house in the kitchen.

Take the scissors and cut the resulting stock from the foil. After such manipulation, the scissors will become much sharper.

If you have a gypsy needle at your fingertips (it's a sack-a long and thick needle ), you can use it. Take the needle, put it between the knives, as close to the center as possible, and close the blade slowly. The needle should move to the ends of the blades.
