Can you dye a tie yourself? Reveal the detailed method!

If you wear a suit and tie every day, it will gradually get dirty.

If it's just dirt, it will come off quickly with washing or cleaning, but it's troublesome when the tie is stained.

Dirt such as soy sauce, alcohol, and juice will stain over time.

The stain does not come off easily, so if you find it, remove it as soon as possible.

This time, we will introduce the basic knowledge of tie stain removal and how to remove stains.

1.Is it OK to wash a necktie in the first place?

There are many types of neckties.

·wool

·hemp

·cotton

・Rayon

·polyester

·silk

Materials such as those mentioned above are used in tie fabrics.

Among these, 100% silk and embroidery/patterned items cannot be washed.

Neckties made of other materials can be washed, but if you wash them by hand or machine, the colors may fade, wrinkles, and wrinkles.

So, if possible, it would be better to ask a professional cleaning shop to clean your tie as well as your suit.

And if it's not a stain but a stain on the necktie, it's difficult to remove it just by washing it yourself, so you have to practice removing the stain separately.

〇 Let's check the washing mark that can not be washed with water

Another way to find out if your tie is washable is to check.

Check your tie tag.

If the tag has a "Do not wash with water" mark, it cannot be washed at home.

However, just because it has a non-washable laundry mark doesn't mean it can't be washed at all.

It's just a warning that it's not suitable for hand washing or machine washing at home.

Therefore, there is no problem in sending it to a professional cleaning shop and having it washed cleanly.

When removing stains from ties, check the washing marks first.

If the tag says that it cannot be washed with water, you can't remove the stain yourself, so it's better to leave it to a professional.

Otherwise, you can remove the stain yourself without any problems.

2. How to remove a stain from a tie

Even if you find a stain on your necktie, many people who are busy at work think about taking it easy on their days off to remove the stain.

However, over time, the stain will seep deeper into the fabric fibers of the tie, making it difficult to remove unless you deal with it immediately.

If you remove the stain immediately, you can easily remove it, but there are many cases where you could not remove the stain even if you tried to remove the stain yourself because you turned it around later.

If you ask a professional cleaning company, you can clean the stain even after some time has passed, but it takes time and money to bring it to the shop.

It will be much cheaper to remove the stain yourself.

There are several ways to remove stains from ties, so it's up to you to decide on a case-by-case basis.

〇 If you notice stains, take immediate action

Food and drink stains on your tie are often noticeable immediately.

Once found, do not leave it unattended.

If you notice a stain, immediately wipe it off carefully using a wet towel or wet tissue.

And don't forget to wipe dry afterwards.

In other words, it is an emergency measure, but simply wiping it off will make it easier to remove stains later, and it will make it less likely that stains will remain.

At that time, it is important to pick up the tie without rubbing it so as not to spread the dirt too much.

And let's remove the stain firmly on the same day.

〇Steam iron

As a method for removing stains from neckties, you can use a "steam iron" to gently remove stains without damaging the fabric.

In that case, be sure to cover the necktie with a patch cloth.

Then, ironing is performed while adjusting the temperature of the steam iron at a low to medium temperature.

[How to remove stains from a steam iron]

1. Put a patch on the necktie and iron it with a steam iron.

2. After ironing, adjust the shape, smooth out wrinkles with your hands, and dry.

3. Insert a disposable chopstick into the crease of the necktie to create a soft finish.

4. Put a patch on the tie again and apply steam

5. When you can confirm that the wrinkles of the tie have grown, let it dry naturally

〇 Stain removal by hand washing

When washing a tie, you can remove stains while washing your hands.

There are probably many people who would like to wash things that they are attached to or expensive ties by themselves as much as possible.

When washing your tie, avoid rubbing or squeezing it with your hands as much as possible.

Fresh stains and dirt can be removed with a mild detergent without the need to scrub hard.

In winter, the water temperature is low and cold, so it is better to wash your tie with warm water.

The advantage of hand-washing stain removal is that you can control how you wash, and you can quickly remove stains and let them air dry.

[How to remove stains by hand washing]

1. Put the tie in a bucket or a washing container and apply a neutral detergent

2. Let the tie swim about 20 times in water containing detergent.

3. Replace the water in the bucket with clean water

4. Put the tie in the bucket and quickly

5. Take out the tie and check if the color has faded

6. If there is no problem, let it dry naturally

3. If you can't wash it with water, use benzene

If your tie has a no-wash label, that doesn't mean you have to give up stain removal.

Even at home, there is a way to remove stains by using a special chemical called "benzine".

Benzine is a solvent made from petroleum and has the property of dissolving oil well.

Many of the products are sold at pharmacies, so they are relatively easy to obtain, but they are highly flammable liquids.

Therefore, benzine may catch fire if you apologize for handling it, so be careful when removing stains.

[How to remove benzine stain]

1. Prepare a wide-mouthed bottle and benzine

2. Put the stained tie in the bottle

3. Pour benzine into the bottle so that the necktie is submerged in liquid

4. Cover the bottle and shake it by hand for about 1 minute to dissolve the dirt in the benzine

5. Take out the tie and hang it on a hanger to dry naturally

6. When the tie is dry, put a patch cloth on it and iron it with a steam iron to smooth out the wrinkles.

4. If there is a chance of failure, leave it to the professionals

As mentioned above, there are several ways to remove stains at home, such as steam ironing, hand washing, and using benzine to remove stains.

However, if you fail to wash your tie with benzine yourself, especially a tie with a washing mark that does not allow washing, the tie will be ruined.

Also, some items use materials that cannot be washed with water, such as 100% silk.

So, if there is a possibility of failure, it is safer to take the plunge and ask a professional.


5. Summary of necktie stain removal

If you get a stain on your tie, you need to deal with it immediately.

If you leave it as it is and time passes, the stain will penetrate deeper into the fibers and become difficult to remove.

100% silk ties, embroidery, and patterns cannot be washed because they are non-washable materials.

As for how to remove stains, what you can do at home can be done with benzene, hand washing, steam iron, etc.

If you try to remove the stain yourself, you may fail, so if you are worried, it is safer to leave it to a professional cleaning shop.
