Have your tweezers lost its grip?
It turns out there’s a simple trick that revives old tweezers and makes them work again.
All you need to do is use a nail file to rub against the ‘grippy’ section of the tweezers. Or sandpaper, if you happen to have that lying around.
The trick is to grab a nail file or emery board with your tweezers, gripping it inside, then pull the tweezers along the rough surface to sharpen the edges and remove any adhesive residue.
The same technique works for sandpaper – just fold it so it’s double-sided, close the tweezers around it, and pull.
But before you immediately go back to lashing, give your tweezers a quick clean. This makes sure you don’t have any rough bits left over from the sharpening trick.
