Sharpen your paper shredder

Submitted by Helen

When your paper shredder needs sharpening, fold a piece of kitchen aluminum the size of a regular 8 1/2 X 11"sheet of paper and run it through the shredder. Repeat once again and your shredder will work like new!

So simple, but it works!!! Comments By: B. Davis on 2008-11-15
Thank you so much for posting this tip. I really didn't want to go buy a new shredder, and after doing what you said I now don't! I used Heavy duty aluminum foil, double thickness. Ran two paper sized pieces through and it is now shredding like a charm!
