I have a zip stuck on my coat and neither the zipper or the teeth will move. I have tried pulling it really hard but it won’t barge.

Is there anyway to loosen the zip?

Stuck fabric

First of all check for stuck fabric behind the zip, this is a common problem and simply pulling it out should do the job.

Using a lubricant

You can put a few drops of a lubricant (lip balm/Vaseline/shampoo or any other smooth substance) onto one of these cotton swabs/cotton buds:

You can then lubricate the zipper and it hopefully it won’t be stuck anymore.

    It can help by pulling the zip in the reverse direction, teasing the fabric away from the zip guide. – Weather Vane Aug 15 '19 at 9:39
