How do you properly clean a tie?

Are ties supposed to be cleaned? If so, what is the best way? Or do you just have to keep them 'clean'? Because if it is the latter, then you would have a tie for decades and never have it washed, and this just feels dirty. I read online that since ties are made of silk, you would dry-clean them, but this process slightly damages the tie. I'm not talking about spills or stains on the tie, but just wearing a tie as part of your day (ie like a doctor). My alternative would then be to buy many cheap ties and throw them away every year once they seem to get dirty.
