Not to be dramatic here, but untangling necklaces is an acute form of torture in our book—only made worse by travelling.
Hence, our elation upon discovering that a nifty hack for keeping chains in order was actually hiding in our pantry: Press N’ Seal plastic wrap.
All you need to do is cut two sheets of the same size, place your necklaces (or bracelets, earrings, whatever) atop the bottom sheet, then gently “press and seal” the top sheet around them to secure. Once your jewels are tucked into their discrete little straight jackets, just lay them flat in your suitcase between your layers of clothing for protection.
No nicks, no tangles, no precious suitcase space sacrificed.
