Helpful Items
Most of us have tangled up a necklace at one point or another. If you're feeling stressed and don't have a lot of time to spare in order to get it untangled, here are a few helpful items that will make the process a little bit easier. First, grab some toothpicks or pins, these will help you navigate through the knots and speed up the detangling process significantly. Next, have some baby powder on hand. Baby powder is an excellent tool that will help quickly loosen any knots that the necklace has. Third, having paper towels on hand can limit any mess that is created from the baby powder. Alternatively people have reported success in detangling when using additional tools such as Windex or baby oil, however this guide will not be using those items.

Untangling Your Necklace
Necklaces can be a pain to untangle, especially when you're in a time-consuming or stressed-out situation. Fear not, because we're here to help! Here are the steps you need to take to untangle your necklace in a time-consuming, stress-free manner:

1. Start by putting your tangled necklace on a flat surface. Being able to use a flat surface will greatly aid you and speed up the time spent trying to detangle the necklace.

2. Apply baby powder to the tangled areas of the necklace. The powder will act as a lubricant and assist with the detangling process as there will be less friction among the chains and knots.

3. Grab two pointy items similar to a toothpick, straight pin, safety pin, or thumbtack and poke and pull on the tangled part of the necklace.

4. Keep poking and pulling the knotted parts of the necklace and your necklace should be untangled within minutes!

5. Be sure to store your necklace in a safe place so it doesn't get tangled again.

Tips To Prevent Necklace From Tangling
There are a few simple tips you can use to help prevent your necklace from knotting up in the first place. First and foremost, when storing your necklaces be sure to separate them from one another to avoid any risk of multiple necklaces tangling together, especially if storing in a jewelry box. Some people even use "hacks" like putting their necklace through a straw in order to prevent any tangling. Secondly, make sure that you regularly reorganize and clean your jewelry so it doesn't contain build-up of oils and dirt which can cause knots to form. And lastly, always wear a clasp when wearing a necklace as this will help ensure that the knot isn't formed around the clasping mechanism.

What causes necklaces to tangle?

There are a few potential culprits that can cause necklaces to knot up. One of the most common causes is oil and dirt build-up on the necklace which can cause the chains to stick together, this is one reason that some people attempt to detangle their necklaces by using soapy water, jewelry cleaner, or even olive oil.

Finally, wearing a clasped necklace can also contribute to knotting as the knot can tighten up around the clasping mechanism.
