I would like to know how I can clean a silk tie at the knot. I presume it got filthy, over time, due to "fatty" fingers. I am looking for answers either based on 1) good theory or 2) personal experience. I am not looking for grandma's advice.

  • $\begingroup$ I think this is fine for the site, it's an application question about materials and reagents. You will probably get a better answer eventually. $\endgroup$ – jonsca May 1 '14 at 23:25
  • $\begingroup$ I'm confused, what do you mean by "at the knot"? $\endgroup$ – qwersjc May 2 '14 at 3:16
  • $\begingroup$ @qwersjc That's the location of the staining. The staining probably happens when I pull up the knot to my neck (over months or even years). Maybe it is sweat. $\endgroup$ – Řídící May 2 '14 at 4:02
