It was our first year as boat owners, we were at Clinton Yacht Haven our marina and all of the guys were telling us, ” you won’t ever take your boat canvas’s off, zipping them back on is a pain in the arsk.” (They use a bit more colorful verbiage than that!) I told them “No way, I will take my boat canvas off all the time!” But yup… they were right, OMG it was awful! The boat canvas zippers were sticking, the snaps were stuck, and the boat canvas was so stiff. Stuck Zippers, snaps that wouldn’t snap, and sticking slider doors and hatches were becoming a big problem!

About 10 minutes into the struggle between me and the boat’s windshield canvas stuck zippers, I remembered I had a small block of smelly wax in the car (the one I used on thread and zippers). I grabbed it…ran it up and down the zippers, and it worked (well if it worked on dress and coat zippers why not boat canvas… right?). I said to Deb and John the owners of our Marina someone should market this, maybe I will, we all laughed.

On our drive home that day, I was sitting there enjoying the ride, thinking about the day and what a cool thing the smelly wax might bee…I turned to Dawn and said, “Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax” “Get’s Stuff Un-Stuck”…HONEST…that is how it started! Dawn looked at me and said, “What are you talking about?” as usual she though I was just jabbering about something, but I said ” No that’s the name of the wax,
that’s the name of the company, I am going to market this.
Well from there the rest is history! On July 25th 2011 we launched our Web-Site and now it is up to us! We want Bee;s Knees Zipper Wax in ever home, boat, camper, glove box, hunting duffel, toolbox, sewing kit, and office desk drawer…
