A necktie or bowtie gives flare and uniqueness to an outfit. It can also dress up or dress down what you are wearing. Whether a simple pattern or exquisite conversational tie, they require attention and care if you would like them to last.
At the end of a work day, resist the urge to yank off your tie. Pulling the tail (the skinny part) through the knot will cause permanent stretching and damage to the interior lining and outer layer. The best thing to do is to reverse the knot you used when tying the tie.
Ties are made of delicate fabrics and are extremely impressionable. Wrinkles will come easily from improper storage, aggressive undoing of the knot, and the knot being too tight. When storing, hang ties on a designated tie rack or hanger. Creases made throughout the day and from the knot will fall out from gravity after a day or two.
When traveling, roll ties to avoid creases from being crunched. I always tuck mine in a shoe for more protection.
Ironing a tie will cause the edges to crease and flatten it out. This is not what you want! Instead of ironing it, you can remove harsh wrinkles by hanging the tie in the bathroom during a shower. The steam and gravity will reshape the tie.
To remove stains or spills, blot the surface with a cloth. Do not press firmly or rub, the stain will spread and penetrate the fabric deeper.
