non sticky scissors
Ok girls, I don't know if this one has been posted before but I have spent the day cutting masking tape and after the third time of cleaning my scissors I hit on an idea (out of sheer desperation I have to be honest). When I am parching I use different methods for smooth pricking and embodssing, one of which is a tumble dryer sheet so tried it on my scissor blades and hey presto so far no more sticking. Hope it helps some of you.
I try to keep an open mind - open mind, open heart

Re: non sticky scissors
Lynn - wet or dry tumble dryer sheet ??? will try the hand sanitiser idea - thanks Sue... bet its the alcohol in it that unsticks the glue I keep a pair of scissors just for sticky stuff (they have a ribbon on the handle to remind me) but I need to clean them regularly and tend to use Stick Away from Crafters Companion...

Re: non sticky scissors
I just used one fresh out of the pack, mind I had used it on my poach and put it back a couple of times first. They don't actually feel wet as such, more like lanolin feels.

Re: non sticky scissors
Great idea I bought a small ( and very sharp) pair of scissors from a craft fair many years ago, which had Teflon coated blades. I seem to remember that they weren't very expensive, but they are the only scissors I've used for cutting sticky stuff ever since & they never get gummed up!

Re: non sticky scissors
I use WD40 to clean mine. The Teflon ones sound a good idea though!

Re: non sticky scissors
I use one of those hard glue erasers on mine which works very well. Been using it for years since it was sent to me as a freebie and I didn't know what it was :roll: :oops: I see that Joanna Sheen now sells them.
So much to craft, so little time
