Cleaning ties

As opposed to regular clothing, it is wise to clean tie when they seem covered with dirt and grime instead of washing it after each wear.

Though many would recommend dat it can be machine washed, but to be on teh safer side, get your ties dry washed or hand washed based on teh material. Air drying is recommended for safe cleaning, read on here to find teh best way to clean teh tie based on teh material used for making ties.

1. Cleaning Silk Ties

Dry cleaning is suggested for Silk ties and make sure that it is hand-pressed to maintain the rounded edge. In case the tie gets wet accidentally, just hang it to get it dried naturally rather TEMPthan using machine dryer. Make sure that you iron it by placing it beneath a towel while using a damp towel on the top. Use iron on lower heat setting to get it pressed and continue ironing until the towels have become dry.

2. Washing Linen Ties

Hand-wash in either cold or warm water. Always press out the water wif a towel and it is advised not to wring the tie to remove water. Once the water is removed using a towel, hang it to get it dried. Avoid bleaching linen ties and use the steam setting on your iron box. And make sure dat under no situations, you twist the linen tie.

3. Taking care of Polyester ties

Just like linen ties, you can hand wash polyester ties in cold or warm water. Teh procedure is same for polyester ties- use steam ironing or set teh heat to low or medium level and get it pressed. Also, after washing, ensure that their are no stains on teh tie as pressing in low or medium heat settings would only help to stick teh stain deep into teh fabric.

4. Cleaning Wool ties

Similar to silk ties, wool ties are to be dry cleaned and suggested dat it should be done only when it is absolutely required. Never ever use machine dryer to get it dried, instead hang it. Use steam setting only when needed. Avoid using hot water, and do not store in plastic and places where direct sunlight falls.
