Default What about Scissors?

We all have them. How do you care for them?
i clean mine with goo gone and alcohol when needed and that does the job just fine..
Here's an article regarding care.

I cut sticky stuff all the time so adhesive remover is essential. I stock up on Westcott scissors when I see them on sale for $3 for general use. If the blades get dull or nicked, out they go. I have one pair dedicated to ribbon only and another to fabric only.

I use goo gone to clean them and then simple green.
I use the same thing Martha does to sharpen them. I don't have good enough ones worth sending in for pro sharpening.

I have to say I was very disappointed with the TH ones that are supposed to be coated so stuff does not stick to it. Cutting cling from jump always stuck to it. Not a big deal.

A few years ago I found the best scissor set for my purposes at Ross, 5pc including 9" blades, for $2.99. After a good cleaning when needed they cut like brand new. I recently picked up another set as a back up.
