Default Punch sharpening????

I am sure this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it in any threads.
I heard foil and I heard wax paper, to sharpen up punches. Which one is the correct way?
thankyou !

Try fine grit sand paper or if there is one section that is not cutting properly, use an emory board (nail file) it get's into hard to reach areas nicely. hth

I tried out fine sandpaper to sharpen my large circle punches recently, and it seems to have dulled them even more instead of sharpening them. I don't know if I did something wrong when I made my sharpening attempt, tho.
