Twisted Curling Iron Cord Troubles

As embarrassing as it is to admit this, does anyone out there know how to untwist a curling iron cord? 
I thought I would post it on Abbie's 5 Days 5 Ways Friday-Free-For-All blog.

I totally love my curling iron as old and cruddy as it is and I'm not yet in the market to buy a new one. 


However, every time I use the darn thing I get all tangled up.  Sometimes it even comes unplugged from the wall when I use it.



My question is does anyone know a way of untwisting the cord itself?


Also would anyone have a way of cleaning/scraping the build-up of hair products off from the barrel?

    I would hazard a guess it's cheaper to buy a new one....I have an iron with the same problem...as far as the twisted cord goes.

    As for cleaning off the hair product gunk....you can try this:
