    Like a moron, I wolfed down lunch in my car today and spilled ketchup on a beautiful Ben Silver blue and white rep tie.
    The stain is on both the blue and white parts. I rubbed some ices cubes on there and that helped, but did not eliminate the problem. Ben Silver told me to use a baby wipe on there, which I will do when I get home. But they didn't sound real hopeful. I though maybe putting club soda on there, or woolite. Any ideas? And do I like need to go home sick (grin) so I can treat my tie?

    If you have a good dry cleaner, get it there right away. If not, you may be out of luck.

    Steve's probably right, but there are also home dry-cleaning kits, both the dryer sheet kind and a spray spot remover. If your dry cleaner can't get it completely out, you can try those things yourself, in lieu of just giving up.

    Crisis averted guys. My secretary had a pack of baby wipes in her purse and they took those stains right off. Now if I could just get rid of those baby wipe stains left behind......VBG

    Very quickly, find a baby and wipe its bottom with your tie.

    even if you think the stain is out, i would still send the tie to tiecrafters for their 10 step cleaning process. actually, it is a good thing to keep written down in your planner: www.tiecrafters.com see pricing and services
