From the Blogger: "It has been a recent popular trend to use wire wool inside pincushions in the hope that it will help sharpen them. This quick sewing tip video explains why you could be doing more harm than help if you choose to follow that tip. The quick sewing tutorials series is made by Linda at Sewing Bee Fabrics and available to watch on YouTube. Pop over to see this video and other beginner and improver sewing tips on our YouTube channel."

Wow, I never knew steel wool could be harmful to the newer pins we use now. This video claims that pins made today can have the metal rubbed off them when put into steel wool, thus making them more prone to rust down the road, as opposed to the older pins that had benefit. Though I suppose if you are still using older pins, it wouldn't hurt, but how many of us sort our pins?
