4 Rules to Protect your Fabric Scissors

Does your fabric scissor turn blunt fast?

I used to work in a fashion retail store where altering the length of pants and jeans is a daily chore and it irks me when the cranky fabric scissor turns blunt after just a few months of sharpening.

To prolong the sharpness of the one and only fabric scissor in the shop, rules were imposed and it worked well in the shop. Here are 4 rules you can impose at home:

  1. Handle with care!
    Dropping the scissor is never good.
  2. Strictly for cutting fabric only!
    It’s named FABRIC scissor, isn’t it?
  3. Even more strictly, do not use to cut sticky-tape!
    You wouldn’t like a STICKY fabric.
  4. Keep it away from children.
    Just to prevent them from using it for craft. (:

These rules can prolong the sharpness of the fabric scissor but it doesn’t mean that sharpening is no long required. Pamper your fabric scissor by sharpening it occasionally.

Now, you own a HAPPY fabric scissor!
