GlobeRiders “Tips From The Road” – Zipper Maintenance


Quite a few have asked me about our zippers and what to use when to going gets tough.  My response based on advise given to me by a tailor is WAX.  But, it seems no one believes me and they end up using some sort of lubricant which attracts dust and crap.  I have found a video that supports my theory.  One in which we practice too.

    I use a bar of soap. It’ll wash out the next time you wash the item.

    Been using candles on my zippers for years. It was a trick my dad showed me from his trapping days. They would wax everything to keep it going in dirt dust or freezing and they are right it works great, lasts a long time
