Loosen Nearly Any Knot By Twisting The End

Digging your fingers into knotted shoelaces, garbage bags and other tangles is no fun (not to mention difficult). Redditor Jumalkavita shows us a simple trick for opening stubborn knots.

More complicated knots may require you to do this a few times, but it should help you get through knots with greater ease than before.
