Everyone knows the cliché that Valentine’s Day is a pressure cooker for guys in relationships. There is a ton of pressure for dudes in a new(ish) relationship to go over-the-top in impressing their significant other.

However, everyone knows clichés are never really very accurate, and women feel tons of pressure make Valentine’s Day a great day too. One of the toughest things is finding a great gift. Well like I said before, I am never displeased to discover it is a brand new tie rack under that pink argyle gift-wrap!

Tie Rack Blog’s Tips for Maintaining Ties

As a young man first entering the professional workforce, one of the biggest shockers to me was just how expensive a tie can be. Who knew a little flat of cloth that you tie around your neck could cost upwards of 50 dollars??? Add in the fact that my first job required a tie every single day, and you can imagine my entry-level salary was being stretched pretty thing – by ties!

The best way to save money when you have a professional career that requires ties is take very good care of them. If you are flip about the way you treat your ties, you are going to find yourself buying a new bunch of ties every single year. That kind of cash adds up fast, especially with salaries remaining stagnant.

Here are a couple quick tips to help you take care of that tie:

1.)    Never leave your tie tied-up. That is a great way to get deep, hard-to-remove wrinkles in the fabric. When removing the tie, do not just “yank” it off, take care in removing it to preserve the shape.

2.)    When you do get a wrinkle or a stain on the tie, be sure to not iron it. That too ruins the shape of your tie. The dry-cleaner is the only way to go in this scenario.

3.)    Be sure to keep your ties up off the floor! I know they are difficult to store and always fall off of the traditional storage devices. Use something with a little bit better grip like the Wall Mounted 30 Tie Organizer.

With these tips at your disposal you should be able to avoid running up a huge tab at the local department store, wasting money on new ties every month.
