How to Iron a Tie

Follow these simple steps to get those wrinkles out of your tie.


  • Step 1: Set up iron Set your iron on low and use an ironing board with a terry cloth cover.
  • TIP: The iron temperature should not exceed 140 degrees for polyester and silk ties and should not exceed 170 degrees for wool ties.
  • Step 2: Spray with water Spray the tie with water. Then cover it with a cotton cloth for protection.
  • Step 3: Iron Iron from the top of the tie toward the bottom. To prevent stretching, never iron in a circular motion.
  • Step 4: Hang up Hang the tie on a hanger or put it in a tie case immediately for later use.
  • FACT: Starch used on clothes before storing attracts insects and mold.
