Introducción

The most common reason zippers get stuck is that dirt and debris often lodges in the zipper slider. Cleaning and lubricating your zipper helps to extend its life and prevents sticking, oxidizing, and jamming. The procedure we describe here works for both coil zippers and plastic tooth zippers. Lubricate your zipper after you’ve been in a dusty, dirty or wet environment.
