Heaven forbid you ever spill on your necktie. And if you do, we genuinely hope it’s a Tough Tie.
But if you’re reading this and you, for some unbeknownst reason to me, don’t have a Tough Tie yet, and you have in fact spilled on a normal tie, then we still want to help you clean your tie.
Below you will find 5 Easy Steps for cleaning your necktie.
Step 1: Determine the Fabric
Not all tie fabrics are created equal. So knowing what kind of material that sentimental neckoration is made of is step one in figuring out how to salvage it.
The most common types of necktie materials are Silk, Wool, Cotton, Microfiber and Polyester. If the tags fell off years ago there’s still a few ways to figure out what material it is.
If it’s super soft and running your fingers over it creates 6,000 snags, it’s probably silk.If it looks like a sweater it’s wool. If it’s wrinkled it’s cotton. If it looks like silk but you know your dad was too cheap to buy silk then it’s probably Microfiber. And if it looks like it's from the 70’s or 80’s then it’s probably Polyester.
