Learn how to easily undo knotted necklaces and prevent tangles.
It is easy for your jewelry to turn into a knotty mess but you can restore your favorite pieces to their luster in just a few simple steps. Use what you have around the house to get the kinks out of your favorite jewelry.
- Place the chain on a hard, flat surface and apply a few drops of baby oil with a cotton swab to make it slippery, then loosen the links with your fingers.
