I do 2 things to clean my scissors of sticky residue. I keep pre-packaged alcohol pads (like the kind used in the doctor's office) in my caddy on my desktop. When I need a quick cleanup, I just open one up and discard when I'm done. I also keep cotton balls in my caddy and use Un-du on a cotton ball. Sticky stuff comes right off! It also helps me to clean my scissors before I put them away. Then they are ready to go for the next project!
