    How do you cut yours. I use sharp scissors. Is there any other way.

    You have to cut them in one swoop otherwise they arnt cut properly and leave streaks..
    I always buy them to fit

    I just use my carving knife from kitchen cos it's next to chopping board that I do em on, mind you it's as sharp as a razor lol and I've used a stanley as well. Same though push down and do it in one cut.

    I just use my glass sSwear word!er, and do it on the lid of my bucket, but I don't cut them that often, really only when I am changing the blade on my 4inch squeegee. I use a 12" most of the time, and I just buy a box of 25" rubbers for that.

    I use a new Stanley blade, on a hard surface and push down until I hear the click when it's cut right through. There is a few trimming tools out specially for trimming the rubbers
