Tired of your zipper never zipping to its fullest capability? No problem. All you need to do is find a lip balm, coat the zipper in its 'problem area' and then your zipper will zip up no problem! Chapstick is an easy fix to a busted zipper and I always keep one in my purse just in case I encounter a mini emergency with either my client's zipper and/or my own. Don't forget to coat either side of the zipper to be sure that it zips up without any complications."
