Neckties are made from delicate fabrics. You cant just throw them in the machine with the other wash. If you want to your tie to retain its beauty and shape, please follow the recommendations below.
You can wash a synthetic necktie yourself. However, be sure to follow the instructions on the label.
You may never wash a silk necktie yourself. These should be taken to a professional drycleaner who is experienced in cleaning neckties.
If you get a water stain on a silk tie, simply allow it to dry. Never rub the stain using the end of the necktie.
For hard-to-remove stains, hold the stain above the spout of your kettle as it steams, and then use a good cleaning product.
Stains on silk neckties are best removed by rolling the tie up and soaking it in a jar of benzine. Hang the necktie to dry by the tip of the narrow end. This will revive the neckties shine and texture without the need to iron it.
Always hang your necktie up on a tie hanger after wear. Never leave the knot in the tie.
Never disentangle the knot by pulling on the narrow end. Untie the knot by running through the steps to tie the knot in the reverse order.
Never tie the knot too tightly when you tie your neckties.
A silk scarf may be washed by hand:
