Well Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax just added a new member to our family. His name is Rudy, and he’s just 9 weeks old! I wanted to get him a leather collar, but all of thme were so rough at the edges. Then I remembered that I had used BKZW on my shoes like a customer had suggested. I thought, “Well of it worked on my shoes it will work on a dog collar. AND IT DID!.. I lightly rubbed Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax over the stiff leather edges and it softened them right up… I then used it on my docksiders to keep them naturally water tight, (after I conditioned them of course!). I used it on rawhide laces, and all of the stiching on the boatshoes. PLUS I used Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax on the inside of the docksiders at the rough edges, and it softened them right up!..Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax is AMAZING!
