Once you have become accustomed to hammocks, you will no longer want to do without these practical and pleasant companions in everyday life. However, in order to be able to enjoy your hammock for as long as possible, you should follow a few important rules.
Protect from abrasion and sharp objects
When attaching the hammock, make sure that it hangs freely and does not rub against the ground, for example. Hammocks should be protected from sharp objects such as knives or scissors.
Regardless of whether you hang your hammock indoors or outdoors, you will see the first signs of use after a while. Hammocks without a bar can be easily washed in the washing machine at 30°C, and hammocks with a bar are ideal for hand washing.
Cotton hammocks should be protected from moisture. You should hang up your hammock at night to avoid getting damp. However, if your hammock has become wet, you can leave it to dry, e.g. on a clothes dryer.
With the arrival of the cold seasons, the garden hammock has done its job and deserved some winter sleep. The hammock should be shaken out of accumulated dust and dirt and then packed in a plastic bag to protect against moths. In winter, the hammock should be stored in a dry and closed room.
