How to Clean Adhesive from Scissors

How to Clean Adhesive from Scissors

by Phyllis Shepherd, Independent Stampin’ UP!® demonstrator

While crafting, you will use scissors to cut sticky material, like tape or to trim down your rubber stamps, and your blades may get coated in an adhesive residue. Before you move on to the next task, or put away your blades, you need to remove the sticky substance from you scissors. Clean your blades with a safe and effective product such as a citrus-based adhesive remover.

Use a clean cotton ball coated with a small amount of adhesive remover to carefully wipe down the blades from the base of the handles to the tips of the blades. Run the cotton ball over both sides of the blades until all the adhesive is gone. If the sides of your blades are coated in adhesive, wrap the cotton ball around the blade and carefully wipe up and down.


By the way, Stampin’ UP! sells these awesome scissors called Paper Snips. These small scissors have thin, precision ground stainless steel tips and are very sharp. They have a great pointy tip which works wonderfully when you’re trying to cut intricate details. They come with 2 1/2″ blades and a safety cover (perfect for safety), and they are a must have for every paper crafter. They cut in a nice, straight line and stay sharp for years! I LOVE these paper snips.  

As well as using the Paper Snips for their main purpose of cutting, they can be used for other things too!  When you can’t find your tweezers, the tips of these Paper Snips are perfect for lifting off Mini Glue Dots, Rhinestones and Pearl Basic Jewels, and any other small embellishment!
