Tips on Ironing a Tie

Sometimes it is necessary to iron a tie. For example, there are times when you need to remove wrinkles on a tie. Here are some tips that may help you:

  • Before you iron a tie, remember to cover a clean cotton cloth on the tie for protection.

  • The iron should be kept at a lower temperature.

  • In general, if the tie is made of silk or polyester, the temperature of the iron should not be higher than 140°C. If the tie is made of wool, the temperature should not be higher than 170°C.

  • Avoid ironing a tie if possible, since ironing may hurt the tie's fabric (especially when the temperature of the iron is high) and may make the tie look too flat.

  • Have a look at the "How to Prevent and Remove Wrinkles on a Tie" article to learn some of the tricks for removing wrinkles without ironing. Consider ironing your tie only if those tricks do not help.
