How can I easily sharpen my scissors?

Dull scissors made the job harder.  Here are two easy and quick ways to sharpen them with items you probably have around the house.

Aluminum foil:  take a big sheet (about 12 inches long) and fold it a few times to create some thickness. Then cut thin strips of the foil with the scissors.

Sand paper:  use a fine grit sandpaper like a 150 or 200 grip and cut it into small strips; cutting with the rough side down so it sharpens the cutting edge.
