Here is a closeup of the before and after the Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
I have placed a piece of contrasting paper under the punched holes for better view. You can absolutely see the difference. I punched the foil 5-6 times to achieve these results. You'll find that each punch behaves differently, depending on volume of use and type of paper being punched. I have discovered that this works for me as monthly maintenance.

Clever tip! I have a Rapesco on it's way to me so I'll remember this, thank you.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear that you have found this info helpful.Delete
Love your tips! I tried normal aluminium piece before but no use. Now I know I should use HEAVY DUTY ones! And the tip to push holes at the 2 sides of the box is so smart! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Multiple layers of heavy duty foil work best. I bet if you punch pre-treatment and post, you'll see a marked improvement.Delete
