OS X uses ZIP built in

just right click on the file(s) and chose Archive...

Bingo - you have just zipped the files

You can try StuffIt

I like BetterZip even better than StuffIt.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
