Gummy scissors are a fact of life for crafters. My favorite adhesive remover for Snips, is GOO GONE! It's available in all big box stores and really works! I moisten a cotton ball with Goo Gone and wipe all cutting surfaces. I also use it on my Big Shot Cutting Plates, then clean any oily residue that remains. Test before using on non-metal surfaces. It's a life saver! Keep it handy!
