I'm Aaron Tucker and this is how to iron a tie. Before ironing anything you want to check the materials and care label on the garment. Typically most ties are made out of silks so you want to set your iron to the lowest possible setting that will get the wrinkles out of the silk. If you have a steam feature on your iron then I suggest just steaming the tie instead of placing the direct heat on the tie. Also if you have a pressing cloth which most of us do not have in the house, you can use a clean t-shirt or a clean pillow case as well and lay it over the top. But perhaps you don't have any of these items and you have a very wrinkled tie. You want to take the tie and lay it with the face of the tie down flat on the ironing board. This way the back side of the tie is facing you. Take the iron and iron gently over the tie over the backside of the tie. This way you don't have to worry about any leaks or any spillage from the iron ruining the façade of your tie. And just go quickly across the tie. It's not going to take much to iron any wrinkles out. It's not like it's a shirt that's been sat on or slept in or anything like that. It's a necktie, it'll be very few wrinkles and it'll be typically pretty easy to get out.
