Is there hope for removing this abomination from this thrifted shoe?

Man of Lint,

 

What do you do if a tie gets wet?  I had to run no more than 30 yards between buildings in the pouring rain.  I thought I was fine (wet, but not soaked), but the tie is now getting that wrinkled look where it got wet.  What do you recommend?

If you are at work get some paper towels and spread them out lengthwise, slightly overlapping each.
Lay the tie and gently wrap the tie in the paper towels, then fold the tie in half. Put no pressure on the tie.
Let the half-folded tie rest somewhere. The paper towels will wick away the water from the tie. You should be ok in a few hours.
Hope this helps.

Brian those are spectacular results! Well done and kudos on exercising the discipline of using only the eraser first. The mark is not even detectable. Congratulations on your purchase and wear them in good health. fing02[1].gif

Thanks for the info on the eraser Mr. Man of Lint! I'm actually surprised how good the eraser worked. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Any specific brand? I should add one of these to my tool kit.

I shelled out $6.50 for the eraser and brush http://www.ebay.com/itm/290355302097 but it looks and feels just like any other white eraser you use from Staples for $1.99? I wanted the brush also though.
