Caring and Maintaining Your Neckties
After a long day at work, we take off our neckties and set it down. If we put it on a chair, we can accidentally sit on it. This will add a solid crease that will seem to never come out. You might think that there is no way to put it back to its former shape.
It is actually very easy to avoid wrinkling a tie. But if you accidentally wrinkled it, then there are some things that you can still do to restore it to its previous condition and these tips are given below.
The first thing you can do is to hang your tie for many hours. Your necktie can be brought back to its former looks with a simple pull of gravity. After wearing your tie, hang it so that the fabric fibers can be straightened before storing. Your neckties can recover if you wear a different necktie each day of work. Never wear the same tie two days in a row since this will create wrinkles that will be difficult to remove.
You can roll the tie firmly within a long piece of fabric if you cannot remove wrinkles. You can roll your necktie within a bath towel. If you stretch your tie like this for a couple of days, the original shape of the tie will be restored. After unrolling the tie, hang it for a while to achieve the desired straightness before storing.
You can also carefully iron the tie to remove wrinkles but this depends on the fabric. The iron has heat settings which you must carefully adjust to the proper one. Do not burn the fabric with very high temperature. You can also use a clothing steamer to steam out the wrinkles while it is hung. It is also important to be cautious when using a steamer. Ironing and steaming a tie at the same time is not good.
You should send your silk neckties and other fabrics to a dry cleaner for cleaning. Don’t wash you tie in the laundry id you don’t want to create wrinkles and ruin the shape of your tie and permanently damage the colors.
A wrinkle free and brand new look to your tie can be achieved by storing your ties properly. Many people store their ties by hanging them but this is not the best way to store one. The silk fabric can stretch if it is left hanging over a long period of time. Its shape will be distorted or create waves in the body of the tie. The best way to store a tie is to loosely roll it from the narrow end to the wide end and lay it on its side in a separate drawer with other ties. Your ties can warp of wrinkle if there is pressure or crowding in the drawer.
