• Zipper Fixer

    Occasionally after digging seasonal clothes out of storage, the zippers seem to stick. Here's a very simple fix for an old zipper that doesn't want to work correctly . . .


    Sticky Zipper:
    If your Zipper is continually sticking, run a bar of soap up and down the "teeth". This will create an easy lubricant that won't hurt the fabric of the clothing piece.

    Always Open Pants Zipper:
    Worse than a sticky zipper is one that seems to "Fall" open and never stay up! If you're zipper
    won't stay up on your pants, here's an easy fix to get you through the night (while still managing to wear your favorite jeans!)

    Loop a girl's hair tie to the top of the zipper slider, pushing one end of the hair tie through the loop of the handle used to close the zipper.
    Then Feed one end of the tie through the other end and pull, creating a loop with the hair tie. Use the open ended loop to Attach the top of the zipper to the pants button.

      This trick really does work! My family has been using the soap trick with success all of my life The hair band trick works well if you have some thin hair bands about too. Annette

    I've also found that the cheapie store brand packets of kool-aid style drink do not work as well as the real thing.
