The invention discloses a hanging ironing machine. The hanging ironing machine comprises a shell, a steam generator, a spraying head, a sub-ultrasonic generator and a receiver. The steam generator is arranged inside the shell, the spraying head is arranged outside the shell and connected with the steam generator so that steam can be provided for the spraying head, and multiple spraying holes are formed in the spraying head. The sub-ultrasonic generator is arranged on the spraying head, the receiver is arranged inside the shell and used for receiving sub-ultrasonic waves emitted by the sub-ultrasonic generator, and the steam generator is started or stopped after the receiver receives the sub-ultrasonic waves. According to the hanging ironing machine, the sub-ultrasonic generator is arranged on the spraying head, in this way, a user is effectively prevented from frequently bowing for operation, and operation is convenient and rapid; because the sub-ultrasonic generator is in a passive mode, a complex power source, an installing circuit and a driving circuit are omitted, then energy is saved, the structure of the spraying head is simplified, installing is convenient, and the cost is low. In addition, the control reliability of the sub-ultrasonic generator is high, and radiated interference is small.
