Is it NG to iron a tie? How not to fail

For white-collar men who wear suits and ties to do business, it is essential to keep your appearance clean and tidy every day.

If you wear a tie all the time, it will often get dirty and wrinkled.

Therefore, ties should be maintained regularly.

Of course, there are many people who want to use it carefully by ironing it as well as washing and drying it.

However, it is NG to iron the tie directly because it has wrinkles or twists.

This time, we will introduce why you should not iron your necktie normally, and how to properly iron your tie.

1. Why you shouldn't iron your tie normally

Taneties are sold in various materials such as silk, linen, polyester, cotton, and wool.

If you iron directly without understanding the characteristics of these fabrics, the heat of the iron may damage the fabric used in the tie.

Particular attention should be paid to the interlining of the tie.

The interlining has the role of preventing the tie from losing its shape and giving the fabric firmness and stiffness.

As the strength of the interlining becomes weaker, the necktie loses its plumpness and three-dimensionality when tightened.

And some materials are vulnerable to iron heat.

Materials such as wool and silk are delicate, so if you iron directly on such a tie, it will cause the fabric to become shiny.

Also, the number of wrinkles is not a problem, but if the wrinkles are deep, they will be difficult to erase, so even ironing may not fix them.

Therefore, if you decide that the wrinkles and twists on your necktie cannot be cured, we recommend that you immediately have it finished at the nearest cleaning shop.

It's safer to ask a professional to do the cleaning than for an amateur to iron it and make it unnecessarily out of shape.

〇 Neckties are more delicate than you think

A tie is more delicate than you think.

Many of the commonly used ones are made from glossy materials such as silk and rayon.

It has the advantage of looking good, but it is also a material that is vulnerable to heat, so it is safer to iron it as normal as possible to avoid wrinkles and twists.

Some ties are made of materials that are resistant to heat, but all types should be ironed using a cloth or steam iron.

In addition, it is important not to wear one tie every day as much as possible to prevent wrinkles and twists.

Rotate several types of ties and let them rest on different days.

In addition, since a tie is a delicate item, it is recommended to store it in a tie case to prevent wrinkles and twists as much as possible.

2. What to prepare when ironing a tie

If you are a businessman who wears a suit, you wear a tie almost every day.

In order to keep your appearance clean, regular ironing is essential.

And when ironing a tie, it is important to prepare the necessary items properly before doing it.

[Things to prepare when ironing a tie]

·iron

・Ironing board

・Pattern cloth

・Disposable chopsticks

Basically, when ironing a tie, prepare the above items.

In order to improve the finish of the necktie, we recommend using a pressing cloth or disposable chopsticks while ironing while being careful not to damage the necktie.

3. Iron your tie with steam

Just ironing the necktie with a cloth or disposable chopsticks is enough to remove wrinkles and twists, but using a steam iron will make it even more beautiful.

Even at that time, it is basic to put the tie cloth firmly over the necktie and apply a steam iron on it.

Using a steam iron produces high-temperature steam, so if the steam hits the necktie directly, it can damage the fabric.

Instead of applying a pressing cloth and ironing directly on the pressing cloth, the trick is to apply the steam evenly while slightly floating the iron.

At that time, only a small amount of steam reaches the necktie, so you might think that wrinkles and twists are difficult to heal, but it's okay.

Even with a small amount of water vapor, the wrinkles and twists of the necktie can be properly stretched, so the effect will not be reduced.

4. The correct way to iron a tie

The correct way to iron a necktie is to steam iron it with a cloth or chopsticks.

Therefore, never iron directly.

Once the tie is covered with a patch, hold the disposable chopsticks in one hand, hold the tie to the side, and hold the iron in the other hand.

The correct way to do this is to set the temperature of the iron to medium temperature, turn on the steam function, and slowly apply steam to the necktie where the disposable chopsticks are inserted to smooth out wrinkles and twists.

After confirming that the wrinkles and twists are stretched, put a pressing cloth on it before it cools down.

After removing the steam, float the iron a little and dry it while evaporating the moisture with the heat of the iron again.

The trick is to iron the necktie without touching it.

5. Can wrinkles be removed from a tie without using an iron?

Even if you want to iron your necktie, many people don't always have an iron at home.

In particular, many working adults who have started living alone may be in trouble because they do not have an iron.

Also, some people wear expensive ties and don't want to iron them because it might damage the fabric.

If possible, it is better to have an iron, but it is possible to cure the wrinkles and twists of the necktie even if it is not an iron.

・Use mist spray

If your necktie does not have deep wrinkles, you may be able to make the creases less noticeable by just spraying water on them.

If you mist the necktie and let it dry, the wrinkles will gradually grow.

・Using the steam from the bath

If you fill the bath tub with hot water, warm steam will come out.

If you let the steam in the bathroom and hang the necktie for about an hour, you can remove light wrinkles and wrinkles.

Be careful not to make the mistake of getting the tie wet.


6. Summary of tie irons

When smoothing out wrinkles or twists in a tie, never iron it directly.

This is because direct ironing will quickly damage fabrics that are sensitive to heat, such as silk and rayon.

When ironing, it is recommended to use a pressing cloth or disposable chopsticks, and to use an iron with a steam function.

In addition to ironing, it is possible to remove wrinkles and wrinkles from a necktie to some extent by using a mist spray or steam from a bath.
