A tangled necklace chain can be a real nuisance. Even worse, when hair gets caught in the chain, it can be impossible to remove without breaking the chain or damaging your delicate jewelry.
But don’t worry—there is a way to easily and safely remove hair from your necklace chain without any hassle. Here’s how you can do it!
How to Get Hair Out of Necklace Chain
Using Tweezers or Needle-Nose Pliers
The first thing you need to do is try and gently pull out the hair with a pair of tweezers or needle-nose pliers. This method works best if the strands of hair are relatively thin and not too tangled.
You may have to use some force to get the hair out, but remember to be gentle so as not to damage your jewelry. If you’re having trouble removing the hair with this method, try using some oil as lubricant.
Olive oil or vegetable oil should work fine, but make sure you wipe off any excess afterwards so that it doesn’t get on your clothes or skin.
Using Rubbing Alcohol
If tweezers aren’t quite doing the job, then rubbing alcohol may help loosen up the knots in your necklace chain.
Start by pouring a small amount of rubbing alcohol onto a cotton swab and dabbing it into the areas where the hair is stuck in your necklace chain.
Then use a pair of tweezers (or even just your fingers) to try and pull out any loose strands of hair that have been loosened up by the rubbing alcohol.
Keep in mind that this method may take a few tries before all of the hairs are removed from your necklace chain, so don’t give up if you don’t see results right away.
Vinegar can also work wonders when it comes to removing stubborn hairs from a necklace chain.
To begin, soak your necklace in white vinegar for about 10 minutes before using tweezers or needle-nose pliers to carefully remove any hairs that have come loose due to the vinegar’s acidity.
Again, use caution when pulling out these hairs as they may still be very delicate due to being soaked in vinegar for an extended period of time.
Nobody likes having their jewelry get tangled up in knots because of stray hairs getting stuck in it—but now you know how easy it is to remove them!
Whether you opt for tweezers, needle-nose pliers, rubbing alcohol, or vinegar, one of these methods should help you easily get those pesky hairs out of your necklace chain without causing any damage!
With this knowledge under your belt, all that’s left is for you take care of business!
