How to look after your hammock.
Looking after your hammock is as easy as looking after any
100% cotton garment. It is of course fully washable and with the proper
care it deserves, should last you for many many happy and relaxed years!
we have met people who still have their hammock after 9 years, 18 years
and they are still in prefect working order. Although hammocks will
fade, like all cotton garments, when exposed to the sun.
To Machine Wash
We recommend that you first grasp each end loop then
bring them together, tie a knot just under the loop ends and again in
the middle. this will prevent the Hammock from becoming tangled. Put
it into a pillow cover and put into the wash machine, along with a mild
detergent and cold water, taking care in the same way you do with any
100% cotton garment.
To Hand Wash
First grasp each end loop then bring them
together, halving the hammocks length, then tie a piece of string around
the bottom of the loop ends to prevent tangling. Then half the hammock
again by bringing one end to the other and again tie a piece of string
around the middle. Immerse the hammock in warm water with a little mild
detergent, rub gently until the hammock is clean, rinse and hang to
Fold the hammock in half lengthways, tie the 2 loop ends together and
then fold in half again, until you are left with a small package, store
in a dry place.
There are some small, common sense precautions you should
take with your hammock, such as;
- Take care with sharp objects, as string breakages can
be caused if common sense is not applied.
- Cotton Hammocks should not be left outdoors for long
stretches of time, especially in the rain.
- Cut, broken or burned cords can be repaired by knotting
the ends to stop them fraying.
- Smoking in your hammock is not a good idea!
- Ensure your hammock is completely dry before storing.
To prevent the cotton from deteriorating.
