Step 2: Wash the tie
The process for washing your tie will depend on the type of fabric.
If using a washing machine like these models by Whirlpool brand, place the ties inside as a small load with similar materials and pour a bit of mild detergent into the dispenser. Consider placing one to three ties in a garment bag prior to washing to help reduce snagging and tangling. Set the washer to a gentle or delicate cycle with low temp and spin. If desired, you can use a stain treatment prior to washing for heavily soiled ties.
To hand wash ties, fill a sink or basin with cool or warm water and add a small amount of mild detergent. Let the ties soak for about 10 minutes before gently scrubbing remaining stained areas with a soft cleaning brush. Rinse the ties thoroughly in clean, cool water and gently press out excess moisture with a towel.
