Lubricating a Zipper with Candle Wax

October 25, 2011

You can fix a stuck zipper by running a candle up and down on the teeth of the zipper. You should then be able to slide it the back and forth easier.

The teeth of the zipper is one my problems almost all the time. When I slide through the chain, it won't run smoothly. Before sliding to the chain (teeth), I rub the the candle on both sides. Do it at least 3 times before you zip it.

To unstick zippers, I have always used a bar of soap or crayon. If that does not work, use a wax like a candle.
