It seems that there are lots of questions regarding the shelf life of silicone zipper lubricants. Manufacturers suggested shelf life for best performance is 6 months if opened and up to 4 years if un-opened…So what they are saying is , you have to buy there product every year if you use it!

WOW that is just plain crazy, well like a fox!!!! They have built in a repeat customer…every 6 months!!!

Well Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax is a bit more “OLD SCHOOL” ! We bee-lieve that a product should last quite a while. We are built to last!

People ask us all the time.. How long will Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax last… well here are 2 answers…

  1.  Sunken Viking Ships were found with lines coated in beeswax still tied to their masts! The age of the vessel was dated back to the 10th century..
  2. Beeswax candles have been found intact and the wick protected, dating back to the 7th century…

So in answer to the many questions about the shelf life of BKZW.. will Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax last, and not dry out like the other zipper lubes out there…
