Shelly,

Unless you have cut an extremely large amount of of lumber with those 4 or 5 blades in the last year, your problem is more likely a build up of Pine Tar and Pitch.

There have been several methods of cleaning discussed here on the LJs Site and you can review a few and try some of these home brew cleaners to see if that may put your blades back in service.

Chances are you have one or more of these cleaning products sitting on a shelf at home.
Give it a shot and just maybe they will respond to cleaning rather than resharpening them.
