Sharpen A Paper Shredder With Aluminium Foil

If your paper shredder has gotten a little dull, try this quick and inexpensive fix: run a couple of sheets of aluminium foil through.

eHow writes that using regular kitchen foil might give dull blades some of their edge back, but not if the blades are so far gone they’re no longer shredding. Worth a try, though, and something you can do every few weeks as upkeep to keep your shredder sharp. If you’ve got dull scissors too, go ahead and cut some more aluminium foil to keep them sharp.
