New Products for Shirt Launderers @ Clean 2015

Over the past 3 months, I have featured presentations of the newest offerings by shirt pressing equipment manufacturers.  The new and exciting machines were, undoubtedly, the best that I’ve seen.  Nearly every manufacturer had something truly awesome to show.  It has been my format to cap off my clean show equipment columns with a column about the new products for shirt launderers.  In the past, this has ranged from absolutely nothing to a cornucopia of goodies.  2015 is one of those years.  I have a lot of things to show you, so if this column seems to end abruptly – like in the middle of a sentence or in the middle of a word – its because my editor figured that you wouldn’t read that far and ran out of print space.  Sigh.  That’s how they get ya!

New Products from Clean Show 2013
