WD40! Haha, it works on everything, if you're worried it might stain clothes just spray some cooking spray onto the zipper. It should come loose after a few tugs. Good luck!

If fabric is stuck in the zipper, you can gradually work it loose. It takes time, but what you do is tug the zipper a little, try to remove a little of the fabric, and keep repeating until it is all loose.

Try running a lead pencil up and down the the zip, don't know how it works but it usually does.

I've used a candle(wax)or a bar of soap. Use either on both sides of the zipper. Good luck.

If you are out some place and your zipper gets stuck, rub a tiny bit of lip balm on the teeth of the zipper (open and closed) above and below the zipper glide. Gently rub the balm into the teeth with your fingers.

Then gently tug and wiggle the zipper pull up and down toward this greased area. Unlike other solutions, the lip balm should not stain your clothes and can be done easily at home or on the road.
