A friend of mine recently moved to a pretty arid climate, and has been experiencing nosebleeds. While he's trying to fix that, he kinda wrecked a brand new silk tie the first day he wore it :(
Since he's new to the area, he doesn't know which dry cleaners around can be trusted with cleaning ties (apparently, if they don't know what they're doing, it can come out worse than when it started).
So, until my friend finds a cleaners he can trust, is there anything he can do with his tie? See picture, below.
