How to Detangle Jewelry


I’ve had this necklace for years but it’s also been years since I’ve last used it. You see, it has a really bad and ugly knot near the pendant that I have tried but failed to detangle. Just recently,Β I read somewhere that baby powder can actually help do the trick. Judging by the knot, I was doubtful that it would work but it’s still worth a shot. So here goes…

I put a little powder onto the knot and used the needles to work on it. It was a good while before I had any progress but progress it was. I found that it was best to lay the jewellery flat on the table and useΒ a needle on each hand to remove the tangles. Work on it as you wouldΒ shred meat. πŸ™‚

After about 15 minutes, I was able to completely remove the knots! Yahoo! Jewellery saved!

For other brilliant uses of baby powder, I found a Reader’s Digest article on it here.

  1. Thank u mommy for the tip and timely πŸ™‚ coz when I went out with my daughter, she kept on playing with my necklace so I decided to remove it and placed it in my purse. When we got home, well, you can guess what happened πŸ™‚

  2. What a cool tip! Actually I’m a pretty good jewelry detangler; I got a lot of experience because we used to have a jewelry business. Until now I do the detangling at home, but I will surely use baby powder next time!
