…you might try a clean and polish at home first. Jim Peterson, Seattle area Sales Manager for Kai Scissors suggest cleaning your sewing scissors with rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth to remove textile fibers. Sometimes even just rubbing the blades with a chamois or a soft cleaning cloth alone will do the trick. Be sure you do not use water which might cause rust. Rubbing alcohol will totally evaporate so it is the best choice for quick scissor clean-up. It works for mine!
