Hints: Sharpening Knives and Scissors
This is one of the neatest tips I've ever come across. Recently we bought a new set of knives, and while they're still nice and sharp, I was wondering how to sharpen them once they began to get dull.
Here's the great tip I found for you -- use the unglazed ceramic bottom of a coffee cup! Just drag the edge of the knife along that, and you'll be shocked by how well it sharpens the knife! :)
Another tip, this time on sharpening kitchen shears or scissors: fold a piece of aluminum foil a few times and cut the knives or shears through that about 4-5 times. This works to sharpen the blades! Again - I was shocked by how well this worked.
