CLEANING YOUR TIES
If the methods mentioned here don't work, and quality dry cleaners refuse to accept the tie for cleaning, it's time to retire the tie.
Cleaning Water Spots from your Ties
Let the spot dry, then rub the small end of the tie or a separate piece of the same fabric or material on the spot or very gently scraping the surface with a fingernail.
Cleaning Other Stains from your Ties
For simple stains simply dip a clean cloth napkin in a little seltzer or club soda and then dab away what you can.
For tougher stains apply steam from an iron with out touching the iron to the material or hold the tie over a boiling kettle. Then use a dry or powdered spot remover following instructions on the container.
More serious stains will often respond to a spot remover such as carbon tetrachloride
For anything greasy, sprinkle a little talcum powder on the spot as soon as possible and allow it to absorb what it can. After a few hours, brush off the remaining residue with a clean soft cloth
