5 Quick Fixes for Commonly Jammed Items



Our favorite sweaters aren't always the most expensive ones, which means you may run into some issues getting cheaper zippers to zip up. Even the zippers on quality products get stuck from time to time -- usually when it's most embarrassing for you, such as on your jeans when you ducked in for a bathroom break on a first date, or on your jacket after you've spilled sauce all down your shirt.

The fix is easy, though: If a zipper keeps getting stuck, take a dry bar of soap and rub it up and down the zipper's teeth. If you always have a problem with the zipper of that favorite sweater of yours, keep a travel size bar of soap (the kind you can snag on a hotel stay) in your purse for emergencies.
