    I know I'm probably hosed, but:

    I have a nice shiny woven silk zegna tie (lined, not 7-fold) that caught a stray drop of water splashed from the shower.  It's left a 3-inch elongated water spot right down the center.  Already tried the "rubbing with the other end of the tie" technique, to no avail.  How can I get this spot out?  

    My instinct is to wet the entire tie with the same water (cold; either by dipping or just surface-wetting the entire front of the tie) and then just let it hang dry. But I've seen repeated admonitions not to "hand-wash" silk ties.  Anyone have experience with removing water spots?  What will happen if I try my method?
