How to untangle the annoying chain knots?
Baby / Coconut Oil:
Apply baby oil/ coconut oil to the knot with a cotton ball and gently massage it with your fingers until you begin to feel it loosen.
Sprinkle a small amount of baby powder on the knot. It will help to lose the knot, thereby making it easier to untangle the knot.
Alternatively, you can also use a bag. Add approximately one tablespoon of baby powder to a small sealable container or a bag such as a zip-top plastic bag. Place the jewellery piece in the container and give things a shake for about 1-1.5 minutes. The baby powder works within the knots and helps things loosen up easily, without doing any damage to the chain. Remove the necklace and gently massage the knot using your fingers. Most chains should untangle after a few rolls but if it’s taking time to untangle them, then keep your calm and continue working until the chain is knot-free.
Once the chain is untangled, wash it with warm water and a mild soap or baby soap. Rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
Sewing Needle/ Tiny Screwdriver:
This method works best in the worst cases. If the annoying knots are still not breaking, use a sewing needle to work inside knots. In case you don’t have a sewing needle, you can use a tiny screwdriver or any needle for that matter.
You can also use coconut oil for lubrication to loosen up the knot. Don’t worry, it won’t tarnish or harm your precious/semi-precious or artificial jewellery set.
These were a few easy to implement hacks to untangle the jewellery in seconds.
