Your collection of ties can be essential accessories for your wardrobe, from flag ties to solid colors. This is particularly true for those that will need to wear ties for their work. If this is the case for you, it is important to be sure that you are keeping your ties in good condition so that you can minimize the need to replace them or the risk of wearing a tie with unsightly problems.
Determine Whether You Ties Require Dry Cleaning
Eventually, your ties will likely become soiled enough that cleaning will be necessary. Unfortunately, people will often fail to check their ties to ensure that they are not dry-clean only. As a result, they may permanently damage the tie. If your ties indicate that they must be dry cleaned, you will have to avoid washing them. Luckily, the cost to have ties dry cleaned will typically be negligible.
Keep A Spot Stain Remover With You
Over the course of the day, it can be easy to accidentally spill food or drink on your tie. To prevent the tie from becoming permanently stained, you will need to treat the area. By keeping a spot stain remover or treatment kit in your vehicle or desk, you can quickly treat any stains before they can permanently ruin the tie.
Fully Untie The Tie When You Take It Off
When you need to remove the tie, you should avoid loosening it and pulling it over your head. While this may be slightly quicker than fully untying it, the tie may suffer serious damages as a result of this strain. More precisely, the tie could become stretched and warped in a way that could ruin its appearance or make it difficult to tie.
Hang Your Ties When You Are Not Using Them
During the times when you are not wearing your ties, it is important to properly store them. Often, people will keep their ties in a drawer, but this can lead to deep creases forming in the tie. Additionally, the ties could suffer damage from loose threads developing from rubbing against the wood sides of the drawer. When you are storing your ties, it is a better solution to invest in a tie rack. This is a device that will allow you to hang your ties on it so that they can avoid these potential damages. If you are concerned about this taking up a lot of space, you should be relieved to learn that these devices are actually fairly compact. In fact, it is possible to choose a tie rack that will hang with your traditional clothes hangers.
