Get Rid of Wrinkles in 5 Minutes
This is the quickest method and very effective. All you need is a good eye, a squirt bottle and an iron. Your tie was made from a custom made organic cotton cloth that was then wrapped around the base of the tie. Then an iron was used to create creases in the fabric so it would hold its shape. In the 5 minute method to remove wrinkles you are recreating those creases by ironing your wrinkles out.
First, you will want to lay your tie flat on an iron board. If you don’t own an ironing board you can lay out a towel on the carpet or counter, then lay the tie out on the towel. (This way you don’t flatten the carpet, has happened to us before) You will want to lightly spray your tie with water and use low heat on the iron. When you begin ironing your tie it is important to start at the widest tip of the tie and make your way up. After finishing the face of the tie from tip to tip flip the tie over and do the same on the back. Again, start ironing on the tip of the widest part of the tie and make your way town to the skinniest part of the tie. This will be a quick fix to any wrinkled tie.
Please be sure to make sure your iron is on low heat and slowly turn up the heat to make the crease more defining. Please have patience when ironing, if you try to turn the heat up to high or too fast this could damage the cotton and even cause deeper wrinkles in the material.
At the end of this method you will have your wrinkled ties looking like these. Good as new!
