12-pack of lubricant sheets sharpen, clean, and lubricate shredder blades

Top Positive Review

My micro-cut paper shredder started acting up recently, struggling to shred anything more than two sheets at a time and even stopping part way through shredding. I was a little skeptical about these shredder sharpening and lubricant sheets but I decided to give these a try figuring it was worth a shot and a lot cheaper than buying a new shredder. I followed the instructions exactly of shredding a sheet and then putting the shredding in reverse for 10 seconds. Half way through running the shredder in reverse I noticed the shredder start speeding up and the motor stop struggling. The shredder has been running like new since. I didn’t think it would work, but they really did and I’m impressed.

Top Critical Review

For your safety, please do not buy these sharpening sheets. I was using the Amazon sharpening sheets with an Amazon basics paper shredder and it ignited and literally blew up. In the pictures attached, there are some singed sheets of paper and small warping in the plastic of the shredder. I contacted Amazon, but I write this in concern for others. I’ve had the shredder since 2016 and love it, and I don’t believe that was the issue. I do think the sharpening sheets were and I urge people not to buy them.

Customer Questions & Answers

Do you shred the whole thing, including the pouch, or take it out of the pouch? Instructions seemed to indicate putting the whole thing in…..
Answer: Yes – shred the entire white pouch. Do not open it. It is filled with the lubricant for the blades. They are shaped to fit long ways in the shredder to go from edge to edge. These are really nice and handy, and do a great job.

Oily paper contaminates and ruins paper re-manufacturing process. Should these sheets be run into empty bin and trashed rather than recycled?
Answer: Definitely don’t run it into paper if you’re able to recycle shredded paper! I would empty the bin, put a small trash or plastic grocery bag in the bin and shred the oil paper into that so it can be disposed of without getting oil into the bin before you resume shredding clean paper.

how do these sharpen the blades? Clean and lubricate, maybe, but how does it sharpen?
Answer: The sheet has an inner liner, perhaps aluminum foil, that sharpens the blades as it shreds.

sharpens? is there metal in this and can you get cut pressing down the paper after use (when bin full light comes on)
Answer: There isn’t anything in it that cuts you. The contents are dark in color which makes me think it may contain powdered aluminum (?)-if you cut through aluminum foil with scissors it will sharpen the blades, so I’m applying that idea to this theory.

Probably a dumb question, but are the sheets to be inserted into the shredder vertically or horizontally (to sharpen all the way across)?
Answer: This shredder only works vertically with letter sized papers. Your question was excellent. Before you submitted your question I never considered shredding 11″ x 81/2″ papers horizontally.

Thanks – Willie
