If you love to wear necklaces, especially if you layer them, your chains must have ended up with tangles at some point! Some cases are less severe than others in which they untangle with a few tries. Yet some others are nearly impossible to fix that we have given up on wearing our jewels altogether! Whether you've tucked them away in the zipper pockets of your handbag, are resting on top of your vanity, or casually hanging around your neck, chain necklaces have a mischievous way of getting into a tangled mess that can be annoying to deal with, to say the least, especially when your in a rush!
So besides sitting for hours trying to disentangle the knot, what can a girl do?? We've outlined our top three tricks for how to untangle necklaces (works the same for chain bracelets) so you never have to let an intertwined jumble of chains keep you from wearing your favorite pieces. The hacks are quick, easy, and rely on common household items you likely already have lying around in your home. So don't let anymore tangles slow down your life.
1) 1st TIP
Apply melted coconut oil to the knot with a cotton swab. This will make the chains slippery and the knot will come undone easier when you pull on the chain. If the knot is still tight, gently massage it until you begin to feel it loosen. Once you've untangled the knot, you can rinse the baby oil off the necklace using a mild soap.
2) 2nd TIP
Insert a needle, push pin or thin safety pin into the center of the knot, then slowly pull up to separate the chains that your fingers can’t reach. Sometimes a screwdriver can work. Use sprinkle motions with fingers once a bigger knot has been made. Be sure not to catch any openings in the chain of the necklace and risk breaking it.
