Tangled necklaces are a fact of every fashion girl’s life, but after one particularly frustrating knotted necklace fiasco, we decided it’s time to explore a few solutions. Here are our top three tips for setting your necklaces straight.
Tip 1: Apply baby oil ($2) to the knot with a cotton swab. This will make the chains slippery, and allow the knot to undo itself easier when you pull on the chain.
Tip 2: Insert a straight pin into the center of the knot, and pull up to separate the chains that your fingers can’t reach.
Tip 3: Sprinkle baby powder ($1) on the knot, which will act as a lubricant to make the chains easier to pull apart.
