I have a zipper that sticks all the time. What can I do with it to make it better?

You could also try a rubbing a candle on it.
4) Baby Oil
Rub a bar of soap on it or a candle. This lubricates it. This works on an open or closed zipper.
Another fix temporary fix that I love is to use a TINY bit of Dimethicone based anti-frizz product for hair. One kind is called "Frizz-Eze" another is called "Citre-Shine". This stuff will lube up anything! Just put one drop on your finger & rub it back & forth between fingers & thumb. When most of it is rubbed into your hands & you only have only a TINY bit left, rub your finger down the inside of the open zipper. Never use cooking oil as it will turn rancid. TINY amounts of Mineral oil or Baby Oil can also work.
* Don't use a pencil on light colored clothing! It can rub off & stain the fabric. & use only a white candle on light colored clothing just to make sure. Graphite works best on metal zippers, not so well on plastic.
