How to Get Smoke Smell Out of Ties

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.

Use baking soda to eliminate smoke odors from a tie.

Things You Will Need

  • Baking soda
  • Damp cloth

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.

  1. Lay your tie on a flat surface.
  2. Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on top of the tie. Baking soda absorbs odors and does not harm fabrics.
  3. Let the baking soda sit on the tie for two to three hours.
  4. Pick up the tie and dust off the baking soda.
  5. Wipe the tie clean with a damp cloth.

Things You Will Need

  • Baking soda
  • Damp cloth
