How to Get Smoke Smell Out of Ties

Save

If you are a smoker or spend time in a smokey environment, your clothes may be left smelling like smoke. Most articles of clothing can be machine washed, and the smell will be erased. However, more delicate articles like a dress tie require a different cleaning process. A tie's fabric may become discolored and shape warped if it is washed conventionally.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking soda
  • Damp cloth
  • Lay your tie on a flat surface.

  • Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on top of the tie. Baking soda absorbs odors and does not harm fabrics.

  • Let the baking soda sit on the tie for two to three hours.

  • Pick up the tie and dust off the baking soda.

  • Wipe the tie clean with a damp cloth.
