Zippers haven’t changed much since they were first invented, and neither have the problems we all have with them. From stuck zippers to teeth that just won’t clinch, here’s how to fix all the problems you’ll run into with anything that zip.
When your zipper is stuck it feels like it’s getting caught on something. The zipper might not come down at all, and until you fix it you’re stuck inside your jacket.
The best way to fix this?
Spray a little WD-40® and see it loosen and zipped up in no time. Start with the zipper all the way up, and slowly apply the the lubricant to the teeth. Then inch the zipper down some more, reapply, and continue doing that until the zipper comes all the way down. This is especially handy to fix a zipper stuck in the fabric itself.
So next time when you are looking for a good tool to help around at home, consider WD-40.
