Caring and Maintaining Your Neckties
The first thing we do when we arrive home from work is to remove our neckties and set it down somewhere. If we put it on a chair, we can accidentally sit on it. When you look at your necktie, you will find it severely creased and you don’t know how to take the creases 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.
You need to hang your tie for a long period of time. 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. You should wear a different necktie each day of the week so your neckties will recover. Never wear neckties on consecutive days since this will give it wrinkles that are difficult to remove.
If after days of hanging the wrinkles are not gone, then another method you can try is rolling the tie firmly with a long piece of fabric. You can use a bath towel for this. The original shape of the tie would be restored if it is kept rolled for a couple of days. When the tie is unrolled, you should hang it for a while to replace the desired straightness before storing.
Depending on the fabric, a necktie can be ironed to remove wrinkles. The iron has heat settings which you must carefully adjust to the proper one. Do not burn the fabric with very high temperature. A clothing steamer can be used to steam out the wrinkles as the tie is hung. You should also use caution here Never iron and steam a tie at the same time.
It is best to use dry cleaning services to have your silk necktie and other fabrics cleaned. Washing a tie in the laundry will create wrinkles and can totally ruin the tie’s shape and permanently damage the colors too.
To ensure a wrinkle-free tie which looks like new for as long as possible, store your ties properly. Many people store their ties by hanging them but this is not the best way to store one. However, hanging a silk tie in the closet can stretch the fabric over time. The tie body will have waves which distorts its shape. 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. Do not pressure or crowd your neckties; otherwise, the neckties can warp or wrinkle.
