- Never force it
When a zip doesn’t open or close properly, most people’s reaction is to forcefully tug on it. However, this often does more harm than good. Handle your zip with care by applying a lubricant to the front and back. After application, gently pull the zip, and it should be able to open and close effortlessly.
- Clean your zippers
Clean your zippers regularly with water and a mild detergent to remove any dirt and salt and to prevent deterioration.
- Lubricate your zippers
Apply a zipper lubricant every time after cleaning. This will keep your zip in great condition.
- Fasten your zippers
If you are handling zippers on wearables, make sure to fully open the zipper before putting on clothing. When closing the zipper, fasten the hook securely. Be sure to always zip the zipper completely, to avoid other elements, or the zip itself, being damaged due to pressure.
