Helpful hint: Detangle necklaces with baby oil

No matter how hard I try to avoid it, I manage to get my necklaces with finer chains tangled. Of course, I usually need one of these necklaces immediately as I’m rushing to get out the door. Instead of giving up or spending a ridiculous amount of time untangling them while fraying your nerves in the process, rub a few drops of baby oil into the knots, then work them gently free with a straight pin or a safety pin.
