1. Get rid of knots with a bit of baby powder:



Place your chain on a clean plate and sprinkle the knot with baby powder. It will become loose enough for you to untangle with a needle or hair clip.


2. Save money by cleaning your silver with safe household items:

 

Place tin foil (shiny side up) in a bowl and fill it with water. Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and dash white vinegar. Put your silver in the mixture for about 5 minutes and your jewelry will get its shine back. (Don’t do this with gemstones as it may damage them).


3.  Fasten your bracelet using a paperclip: 



All you have to do is open the paperclip most of the way, but leave one end bent in its normal position. Thread your bracelet through the hooked end of the paperclip while holding it with your other hand. This will allow you to hold your bracelet in place while you clasp it.
 

4. Avoid getting your necklaces tangled when you’re traveling by threading them via drinking straw:


It’s a terrible thing, trying to untie knots in a metal chain, so this little trick will keep your chains straight and prevent them from bunching up.

 
5. Keep your hair from getting caught in your necklace by threading a small piece of plastic over it:



You can get a small piece of aquarium tube from a local pet store and cut it into small pieces to cover the clasp once it’s fastened.
