Here is a simple tried and true method for sharpening pinking shears at home in just a couple minutes using . . .
    basic household items.


    Simple money saving, do it yourself trick for sharpening scissors and shearsTry this trick: fold a square of tinfoil (aluminum foil) several times, cut the tinfoil.

    Be sure that all of the "teeth" are making full
    contact with the tinfoil. Repeat twice.
