First let me explain why my last posts were so short...I have been very tired from work with the extra paperwork I have had this week and since I was short on time and I figured no one really reads what I write *okie thinks if they did they wouldn't ask her questions that are already answered in the descriptions of the projects* it didn't matter a hill of beans what I wrote. A few people think I am depressed, some think I am angry and then there are those who have been with me long enough to know their appropriate response should have been to laugh and they did! *okie loves it when folks get her sense of humor when she gets all creative and shit*
Now about the Cutter Glide! I ordered some back a few months ago when I had to order the new strip for my Pazzles and I took pictures and all that jazz and then never posted about the stuff...remember my squirrel problem! I think I tossed it in my cart when I was ordering the strip to make the shipping charges worth the price and I had been curious about the product. What I ordered came with the Cutter Glide Blade Treatment and the bottle of EZ Tool Cleaner and the price was $10.00, it is available on Amazon and Joann.com as well and the price seems to be comparable, especially when you look at shipping.
I had read that it is suppose to make your blades last longer and if you cut as much stinkin paper as I do you would love to have your blades last longer. I hear some folks say "oh I only change my blade once a year" or "I've never changed my blade since I got my machine" and it really makes me wonder if they even use the dang thangs! But then I have to remember that when I am cutting I am generally cutting in multiples of 6 when I make cards and even when I make altered objects I rarely make just one so my cutting tends to be something more along the lines of mass production and maybe that is why my blades don't last as long *okie knows she has said all that to just be polite because she still totally believes those beeches are just not using their machines*.
I knew it would be hard for me to test blades and see if the Cutter Glide really helped, especially since I don't have the patience for all the research techniques it would take for me to have an accurate report so the next best thing was to test it on my punches! I barely had the patience to wait and test it on them so you can imagine what a horrible, miserable failure my research would be for the blades.
Now have I noticed a difference in my blades I treated? Well to be honest I don't know because I have all these dang blades in a drawer and I forgot which ones I treated and which ones I didn't! I guess I need to just get down all 24,872 blades I have up on the shelf *okie hopes people know she exaggerates at times* and treat them all at once.
I will say I have defintealy noticed a difference in my scissors! I use mounting foam for my pop dots and that stuff sticks to scissors like crazy. I am too lazy to clean my scissors each time and I generally end up with 4 pairs of scissors that covered in super sticky adhesive and clean them all at once. Since I applied the Cutter Glide I have only been using one pair of scissors for cutting my mounting foam and I think don't believe I have used the Undu on them but I do think I used the cleaner that came with the stuff maybe once.
The bottom line is that I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product!
