If you buy your neckties online or fold them while packing your suitcase, you might find them too wrinkled to wear. For best results, follow the care instructions on the label. Keep the iron away from silk ties, but safely use it on polyester and other blended fibers. The low-heat setting is your best friend when it comes to pressing a tie.
Heat the iron on the lowest heat setting.
Lay the tie face down on the ironing board. Spread out the entire length and cover the thin end with a plain white pillowcase or hand towel.
Iron the tie through the cloth, starting at the thin end and keeping the iron moving. Check every few seconds to see whether any wrinkles remain. If you see any, turn the iron up slightly. If not, continue ironing down the length of the tie, moving the cloth to cover each new section before ironing it.
Turn the tie face-up and iron it again from the thin end down using the protective pillowcase.
Spritz the tie with a light mist of water from a spray bottle if the wrinkles are particularly resistant. Lay the towel or pillowcase back over the tie before ironing again.
