I received this question from a reader:
Can I iron my tie? It seems to have permanent wrinkles, but I don’t want to take it to the cleaners.
This is what I shared with them:
You can certainly use an iron to remove wrinkles and restore a fresh look to your ties—but not by pressing them. Here’s how:
- Turn the iron on high and select the steam setting.
- Hold the iron about one inch over the tie and let the steam sink into the tie.
- Move the iron back and forth slowly above the tie’s surface.
This will release wrinkles without damaging the delicate fabric of your tie.
