Care for Your Tie

 

Here's how to keep your tie looking fresh for years to come 😊

⦁ Storage: The best way to store your tie is to roll it up in a sock drawer. This ensures you don't get one of those testy little creases that come from hanging it up for too long.

⦁ If your tie gets wrinkled, a very light pass with the iron should suffice. Very low heat for silk ties (typically the "silk" setting on your iron). A higher heat is OK for cotton and African print ties (the “cotton setting” works well for both).

*Note:  The key words are very light pass.  Your necktie is a delicate creature and you don't want to risk ruining it.

What to do if Your Tie Gets Stained:

Your best option is to start with the least aggressive cleaning method, then move on to the next:

  • Water-based stains: gently dab (don't rub) with seltzer water on a clean, white cloth. If that does not work, you can try a solution of water + a mild laundry detergent.
  • Organic stains ( grease, blood, wine etc): A puff of baby powder works well on organic stains; puff it on, blot the stain with a dry rag a few times. If that doesn't work, dab the stain with lemon juice (test a small area on the back first!)
  • If all else fails: Your local, trusted dry cleaner is a good option and at minimal cost.  Ask first whether or not they can get the stain out; a good dry cleaner will help you make sure you're not wasting your time 😄.
(Side note:   If you are in Orange County, I recommend Chase Cleaners right here in Tustin.  Timely, honest, and have always been responsive with my special requests).


All the Best on Your Necktie Journey!
