Detangling Jewelry Hack
I was getting ready for church today and I had a necklace in mind that I wanted to wear. I opened the drawer that holds my jewelry and looked in the little pockets for the necklace, only to find that it had become entangled with other necklaces and chains in the same pocket. I struggled for a few minutes trying in vain to detangle to mess, only to eventually have to give up and select a different necklace and hurry on my way.
I had heard that you could use baby powder to help with detangling knots in chains so I thought it might help with this proble as well. I got a plate with an edge and my container of baby powder and sprinkled the powder liberally over the knotted chains. I moved them around in the powder so that they were all coated, then used a long pin to gently pull on them to ease them apart. This requires a little patience and good eyesight to accomplish the task. It took me about 5 minutes to detangle the knot and straighten out all of the chains- 2 of which had knots in them as well. I then gave them all a gentle cleaning and separated them for storage in the jewelry drawer. Task accomplished.
