I’ve purchased several good-quality, super fun neckties for my husband over the years. When it comes to neckties, you really do get what you pay for. A good-quality necktie isn’t cheap, so if you are going to invest the money in a garment, then it’s likely you want to take good care of it. But there’s more to taking good care of your ties than just having them cleaned when a spill occurs. Here’s how A Cleaner World suggests you care for your neckties.
- Use care when removing your tie. Instead of pulling the thin end of the tie through the knot, take the time to remove your tie by following the tie-typing steps in reverse. This will help your ties keep their original shape longer.
- Properly store your tie. As soon as you remove your tie, hang it over a coat hanger or a tie rack. This will allow the creases and wrinkles to relax and fall out.
- Pack with care. Fold your ties in fours and place them inside your jacket pocket, then remove and hang as soon as you arrive at your destination.
- Address stains and spills immediately. If you spill something on your tie while out, gently scrape off the excess and blot with a clean, white cloth. Then leave it alone.
- We suggest you take ties to a professional to have them cleaned for several reasons, with the biggest being risk of dye bleeding.
