We've all struggled with knots that won't come undone. How do you undo a stuck knot?

This is assuming that a you don't have a marlin spike or fid with you. If you twist layed ( twisted rope) rope with the lay it will stiffen up and sometimes allow you to push the running end ( loose bit of rope) back into the knot. You'll know it's the right way because if you go the other way the rope will unfurl.
"A good knot is easy to tie, holds the load safley and is easy to untie". Thank you Huey Louiy and Dewey Duck for the quote.
