Another common suggestion from readers was to use some type of wax, again because it should help make it slide more easily.
Janna explained, "Household wax works better. Just run it over the inside and outside."
Many people used candle wax, from a cheap candle stick for example.
However, there were also suggestions for crayons.
I liked Patricia's suggestion, who said, "Keep the wax crayon from the Easter egg color kit," and use that. Great way to reuse an item, and those crayons are colorless so less noticeable I would think.
Use The Graphite In Pencil Lead To Help Zipper Slide Easier
The final popular suggestion from readers for zippers was to use a pencil lead, in much the way they also suggested rubbing other substances on the stuck teeth of the zipper.
In fact, a reader, Christine, summed up all the advice by stating, "To prevent the zipper getting stuck in the first place rub with soap bar, wax (I use an old candle), or pencil lead (graphite). Works like a charm."
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
