Learning how to fix a stuck zipper on a purse won’t take much time at all. This is a short list of fast and easy techniques that you can use to get a purse unstuck.

The most important thing to remember in this process is that your purse is more important than one zipper. If your zipper is stuck and despite all your try’s, you cannot get the zipper unstuck, don’t push it to hard. You don’t want to rip your purse.

We can fix a zipper, but not your purse.

Fix A Stuck Zipper On A Purse #1: Use The Reverse Pull

When your zipper gets stuck on your purse, use the reverse pull. Most of the times, the zipper will be a coil zipper that is metal, which makes it sturdy.

Because it is super sturdy, take the zipper and push down on the zipper while pulling it towards you. If you pull the zipper up, it will be more difficult to get the zipper loose.

Fix A Stuck Zipper On A Purse #2: Liquid Soap


This is a neat method of getting the zipper undone. You take bottle of soap, poor a few drops of the soap out of the bottle and rub it on the teeth of the zipper.

The soap will make the teeth slippery and easy to move the slider away from the stuck section.

I would suggest using a soap that smells the way you would be okay with. The reason behind this is the time that you may be smelling the soap could be a few days.

Fix A Stuck Zipper On A Purse #3: Lip Balm

Using lip balm is a great way to get your zipper on your purse moving again. Most people carry lip balm around in their purses, so lip balm is most likely the quickest tool to use.

Uncap the lid and put some balm on the teeth of the zipper. Try to move the zipper back and forth to get the balm in the teeth and tab (Slider) so it will start moving again.

Fix A Stuck Zipper On A Purse #4: WD 40

For a last resort, WD 40 can be used to get the zipper unstuck. The only problem with WD 40 is that it will leave a smell behind.

If you plan on using WD 40 to get the zipper undone, you may want to let it sit for a period of no less than 48 hours. Also, make sure that all items are removed from the purse before it is sprayed.
