  • Those are a pain in the neck! I usually end up shaking the tangle out of them.

  • First, locate the plug (it's chunky so it should be easy to spot) and use it as your guide. Gently work the plug in and out of the wires, unwinding the strands little by little as you go. Don't let go of the plug, and don't pull too hard, as you can damage the lights. As you untangle, keep the lines straight and lay them out on the floor or wrap them around your arm.. LOL "geesh lace why so serious my hubby said leaning over my shoulder being nosie lol"

  • Lots of patience is about the only thing you need. If you have a limited amount AND you have small children, I recommend learning to cuss in a different language before starting ...
