Sticky Zipper on Boots
I just got a used pair of boots. The zipper is still operable, but sticks especially at the bottom. The zipper is plastic. The boots, all man-made material, are well worn. The zipper is still strong, but hard to zip. Any ideas? Thanks.

You can also rub either the stub of a candle, or a crayon that matches the zipper on the teeth, to help the sticking.
Bees Wax or soap are both good for unsticking the zippers. I hope this helps.
When my kids were little I used to put margarine or cooking oil on the zippers. It usually isn't the zipper that sticks but "street gunk" clogs them up. Just take a cloth and go from one end to the other. That should fix it.
