If, during Christmas dinner, Dad spills gravy on the silk tie you just gave him as a Christmas present, don't despair! While some subscribe to the axiom of never cleaning a silk tie and, instead, replacing it, you can clean a silk tie following these easy tips:
The next day, remove the tie from the towel and then lay it flat onto another dry towel. Allow the tie to sit for two days and any puckering caused by the water will disappear. Next time that Dad wears his silk tie to dinner, tell him to throw the tie over his shoulder to avoid spilling food onto the tie.
If the method above doesn't work to remove stains from a silk tie, visit your local dry cleaner and have the tie dry cleaned.
