Hammocks without spreader bars - including Mayan, Brazilian, Nicaraguan and Columbian Hammocks - can be cleaned both in a washing machine and by hand. For machine washing, fold the hammock in half and tie the edge of the hammock together just below the rings, then tie at the opposite end and in the middle. This will prevent the rings and strings from getting tangled. Place the tied up hammock in a pillow case and securely tie the pillow case closed. Use mild detergent to wash and never use bleach. Wash the hammock separately in a gentle cycle. Carefully remove the hammock from the pillowcase, untie it, and spread it out to dry thoroughly.

To hand wash hammocks without spreader bars, fold the hammock in half and tie the edge of the hammock together just below the rings, then tie at the opposite end and in the middle. This will prevent the rings and strings from getting tangled. Place the tied up hammock in a pillow case and securely tie the pillow case closed. Use mild detergent to wash and never use bleach. Use your hands to agitate the water until the hammock is clean. Carefully untie and unfold the hammock. Spread the hammock until it is completely dried.

To store your hammock, carefully tie it up as you would for either of the two washing methods. You need to protect your hammock from soil, moisture and critters, so use a storage bag made of durable, weather resistant fabric that allows the hammock to breathe. Or you can hang the hammock from its metal rings in your garage or basement.

Hammocks with spreader bars - including rope and fabric hammocks - cannot be machine washed. Lay the hammock out on a hard, dry surface, such as a deck or driveway. Fill a bucket with warm water and a mild detergent and a soft, bristle brush to clean both sides of the hammock. Be sure to thoroughly clean areas with dark or black discoloration, which is a sign of mold. You'll want to hang your hammock immediately to dry, as this will extend the life of your rope or fabric hammock.

Make sure your hammock is dry and apply a protective spray before storing. You need to protect your hammock from soil, moisture and critters, so use a storage bag made of durable, weather resistant fabric that allows the hammock to breathe.
