Many men are fond of wearing neckties and can often have quite a collection of them in their closet.  Ties are a great accessory to add color and dash to a boring outfit.  A great tie can make a fashion statement as well as reflecting your mood of the day. Looking your best is always important and a good tie can add to the overall impression you make.

Do you typically buy new ties to replace old ones because the old ones are damaged in some way?  Do you have to worry about cleaning your ties? Do you usually buy wrinkle free ties to take out the worry of looking after your tie, especially when you are travelling?

If that is the case, here are some practical tips that could make looking after your ties easier..

Keep it Straight

The best way to look after your ties and keep them free of wrinkle and creases is to store them straight .  Immediately after wearing your tie, do not toss it into the laundry basket with the other dirty linen, treat it with respect and hang it up. Good quality ties like silk ties need to be kept wrinkle free. If, for some reason your tie has become creased, care needs to be taken with ironing it. Just operate a steam iron just above the tie, making sure that you don’t touch the tie.  Or, iron the tie with a handkerchief in between the iron and the tie.  If you are travelling, an easy way to get the wrinkles out of the tie is to hang your tie inside the bathroom while you take a hot shower and let the steam straighten out the creases.

Store and pack it right

Storing your tie is very critical. You are able to do this by hanging your necktie or rolling it up carefully. Our Tie racks are available on Amazon and they offer a simple but effective solution to storing your ties.  Alternatively, you might also hang your tie on a hanger and set it in the closet.  If you are doing a lot of travelling you could possibly just buy a tie briefcase or roll your tie and pack it in a your  shoes in order to avoid wrinkles. Straighten it immediately after unpacking. Our Tie Rack Hanger is small enough to be used whilst travelling.

Clean it well

Ties can last a lifetime when you know how to take care of them.  Understand how to store and clean them so that you do maximise the life of the tie. Some times accidents do happen, and stains do appear on the ties.  If this happens, try to get rid of the stain straight away with either a stain remover, vodka or maybe a damp cloth. If the stain can’t be easily removed, then you may have to visit your local dry cleaner and get them to clean the tie for you.  Stay away from using detergents that can include chemical substances that may damage the material of the tie.

By taking a little time and care, you can enjoy your ties for a long time. Make sure you keep it straight and store and pack it properly when travelling.  Keep it clean, there is nothing worse that looking at a dirty tie. By adhering to these easy guidelines you are guaranteed to enjoy your ties for a very long time. Looking after your ties will also save you money.
