Quick Tip Tuesday - Clean Blades and Punches

 Contrary to popular belief, tin foil does not sharpen your machine cutting blade.  Some would disagree, and I will admit it can lengthen the life of your blade, but there's disagreement about whether it actually sharpens it.

What it DOES do is clean it.  Your machine blade needs an occasional cleaning "just because." If you use it to cut leather, adhesive vinyl, and especially glitter cardstock, it could use a quick cleaning.  Just a few jabs into a balled up piece of foil should do the trick, and the Cricut machine has a handy storage slot where you can keep it handy.
