    Make sure your buds are on top of your pointer finger (secured by your thumb) and behind your pinky.

    2. Now, wrap them in a figure-8 motion around the two fingers.

    3. Keep wrappin' until you have 6 to 8 inches left.

    4. Wrap the remaining cord around the figure 8.

    6. Now, when you pull on each end of your earbuds, it'll be perfectly untangled every time!
