Tips for Untangling Jewelry Chain 

There are few things more irritating than a tangled necklace chain. I'm a pro and it still often makes my head explode! Here are some tips to make the task easier, as well as some ways to avoid it! 

Tip 1: Apply a small amount of baby oil or coconut oil on a cotton swab to the knot. This will make the chain slippery. If the knot doesn't come out with a slight tug, massage the oil into the chain a little more and try again. 

Tip 2: Use a wooden skewer or straight pin and slip it through the middle of the tangle to loosen it and make it easier to untangle. 

Tip 3: Sprinkle baby powder onto the necklace and work through the knots with a safety pin. The powder reduces friction, making the chain easier to pull through and untangle. When you're done, just wipe the chain down with a paper towel and follow up with our Freshie & Zero polishing cloth.
