Rough bamboo dpns

I have a pair of dpns that are a little rough. I don’t have time to get new ones, as I’m working with the Christmas deadline.

Is it safe to use sandpaper (super fine) or steel wool to smooth out rough needles?

TIA,

probably with a really light touch…or a really fine grade emery board.

And then rub them with waxed paper.

Thanks ladies.
