Saddle Brook, NJ: To help laundry operators run their flatwork ironers at peak efficiency and achieve the high quality finish their customers demand, laundry product supplier Tingue, Brown & Co. ( has developed a guide to ironer cleaning and waxing. Written in both English and Spanish, the flatwork ironer clean and wax procedures provide a step by step program instructing workers on how and when to shut down the vacuum, apply ironer wax and feed the wax and cleaning cloths through the ironer while maintaining maximum safety in the process. The clean and wax procedures start at the beginning of each shift and continue through three separate breaks for lubrication until the start of the next shift. Several handy tips and safety reminders are included.

The easy-to-follow clean and wax procedures are appropriate for nearly all traditional and flex chest flatwork ironers and may be further customized on-site with guidance from Tingue, Brown & Co. representatives. The flatwork ironer clean and wax procedures are available for free download as pdfs at
