"Untwisting Twisted Cable:"

From: A. Bolduc

For any twisted cable (3 wire NM-B, MC, BX, etc.) entering a panel or wherever, make 2 opposite bends in the wire near the end, then just make a cranking motion in the opposite direction of the twist. The wires end up untwisted in much less time than any other method, and it requires no extra tools.
