How can I remove a food stain from my silk tie?

Silk Tie Stain Removal

You can remove food stains on your silk ties by first gently wiping off as much residue as possible with a soft cloth. You can then treat the spot with either a commercial product called Energine or with dry-cleaning solvent. If a ring forms around the area where the stain was, you can remove it by holding the tie over steam from a kettle until it disappears.

I have over 200 neckties, most of them silk. Until I saw this tip, I thought I was going to have to give up eating soup or spaghetti with marinara sauce! Thanks.
