I was hoping someone had a suggestion for you. I wear bow ties. Obviously there will be wrinkles from the knots. I had read on another board that bursts of steam on a silk bow tie can sometimes cause spotting. I don't necessarily think they need to be dry cleaned, but they do need to have these wrinkles taken out. Do you all do a light iron on them? I would say its a bit harder to get by with wrinkles on a bow tie since the surface area is so much smaller.
