Life happens to hammocks. Mud, coffee and trail mix can most likely be found on or in many hammocks after a full season of hanging around in them. Don’t fret too much though, it’s easy to keep your Eno Hammock clean and fresh throughout it’s lifetime.
The nature of the parachute nylon is fairly dirt resistant to begin with, but it’s always good to spot clean extra dirty spots along the way. Sometimes, it’s nice to revert your hammock back into a flawless, soft, breezy oasis.
Make sure you don’t wash the carabiners! Remove them from your Eno Hammock and set them to the side. Be sure to keep track of them so when your hammock is clean and dry you can get right back to hammocking!
Step 2. Gentle Detergent.
Add just a little dose of a gentle detergent. Wash your hammock alone, with nothing else in the machine. This will get it the cleanest. Do not add fabric softeners or any additional cleaning agents. Wash on cold!!
Step 3: Line Dry.
It’s best to do this chore on a sunny breezy day. That way you can line dry your Eno Hammock outside. Regarless if you do it indoors or out, air drying is what we recommend. When drying outside in the fresh air, it won’t take longer than thirty minutes for your hammock to completely dry.
Step 4: Get In Your Hammock.
Re-attach your carabiners and get outside…once it’s clean, it’s time to get your Eno Hammock dirty again! 🙂
