Default Cleaning SU! craft scissors

What do you use to get the stickiness off the blades? Mine just arrived last week and they're all sticky already from cutting the labels.

Thanks a bunch in advance!
Cindy

On a cotton ball, I use Goo Gone or rubbing alcohol. Both work great!

I recently had my SU scissors sharpened at my local Joanne craft store. I asked the "sharpener guy" if it was okay that I use alchohol to clean the residue off of them & he said that's the best cleaner to use for scissors.

I use that little "eraser" type thing they sell in the SU scrapbooking catalog. It works great and is cheap.

Okay, I know I probably shouldn't, but I just run a paper towel under the faucet and use that. The little ridges in the paper towel grip onto the goo - it's really easy! I just make sure to dry the scissors off really well when I'm done.

I never thought to use the "eraser type thing" that SU sells....I'm guessing you mean that bumpy tan square eraser that is for cleaning off Xyron adhesive, etc. I have one and will try it next time on my gooey scissors.
Like others, goo-gone is my favorite followed by Scrappers Solution by UNDO (a product that is made for lifting glued items without damaging anything....it really does work!)

What I find works really great is to rub my scissor blades with embossing fluid (I found a cheap bottle at Michaels that has one of those spongey ends to it). It is amazing how it helps keep the "gooeys" from building up so quickly. When I'm finished cutting my stamps I clean the blade with Un-du, which I'm guessing is similar to Goo-gone. Try the embossing fluid trick it works really great.

This sounds crazy: I use lotion and some times I use Pam cooking spray! This works great for me!

rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball works the best for me...my demo recommended it and it works great!

I use a versa mark pad to keep the blades from getting sticky and I use fingernail polish remover to keep my Kais clean and residue free

I don't have babies either, my youngest is 8. But they make clean up (of anything) quick and easy. Get the cloth ones not the paper ones.

I use Undo to clean my scissors - it takes the stickyness right off...

I use olive oil. It's gentle and quick, and I don't have to worry about getting it on anything else. And, if a little gets on your fingers, it's a great cuticle moisturizer.

Default That's a great idea and I have TONS of it on hand.

Thanks for sharing about the olive oil.

I'm learning so many tricks of the trade from all your wonderful ladies!

Have a blessed day!
