It’s back! After a couple of weeks of rest, Money-Saving Monday is back this week! Sorry for the hiatus, but sometimes the brain works creatively and thinks of cool things, and sometimes it doesn’t! My brain has been on vacation the past few weeks!
Last month, I bought some unmounted stamps and used Crafter’s Companion EZ Mount foam to mount the stamps so that they would cling to acrylic blocks. It worked great, but after I trimmed the excess rubber and mounting foam off, my scissors were so gunked up, they were unusable I considered tossing them at first, but they were relatively new and still super sharp, so instead, it was hubby to the rescue!
He went out to the garage and came back with some Goof Off. Even though this stuff is billed as paint remover, hubby has used it for years as a “sticky” remover too. I put a few drops of this stuff on a paper towel, wiped both sides of my scissor blades with it, and presto…scissors just as good as new! This is also the same stuff I used to take the sticky off of the baby food jars I use to display my embellishments, You can find Goof Off at most stores including Wal Mart, in the hardware or automotive section.
If you can’t find Good Off, another good solution is using lighter fluid. It may take more than a few swipes, but usually fixes the worst sticky messes too!
