Terrific Tip Tuesday-- (Un) Tie the knot

No need to get in a twist over knotted necklaces. A straight pin is the perfect tool to get out the kinks. For stubborn tangles, place the chain on a hard nonporous surface, like glass, and apply several drops of baby or mineral oil, then try untangling again. Prevent knots by hanging necklaces or storing delicate strands, clasps closed, in clear plastic bags (hanging necklaces w/heavy pendants can strain the chains).

**Bonus tip: Stash two jewelry-polishing cloths- one for tarnished silver, one for anything else- with accessories, so you can quick-clean pieces before wearing!

Hope this is a helpful tip!
