Ties are made from several different materials like silk, polyester, wool, cotton, and linen, so each one can have different care instructions. Silk neckties make up 40% of the ties sold today, but ties of other materials should also avoid a washing machine. A fine silk tie has intricate stitching that can come apart in a wash cycle or dryer. You can use a stain remover, warm water, and detergent for small stains, but take them to the dry cleaner for more serious stains.
