There are several different ways to properly tie a necktie, but did you know there's also a way to properly untie one? As evidenced by the many tricks out there for getting the perfect knot in your tie, it's only natural to want to avoid undoing your good work. But leaving your tie tied at the end of the day is a big mistake. Leaving the knot in place will cause your tie to become permanently creased. Since ties can't be washed or ironed, this will just ruin it. So when you come home after a long day, avoid the urge to rip off your tie as soon as you step in the door. Instead, follow the steps you used to tie your tie, but in reverse order. It might not be as quick, but it will keep your ties looking clean and professional for longer.
