    Salt and Nylon?

    OK, in the interest of science ( and conditioning! ) I have been hiking into the MS woods ( more shade than backyard) to test rope cleats. Just going out in the back yard, much less hiking, results in instant copious sweat. So after I hang my hammock to a couple of trees to test the cleats, I am soaked. I sit or lay down in the hammock, and the hammock is soaked.

    By the time I pack up, the hammock has air dried well. But is there any reason to worry about the left behind salt damaging the hammock? Do I need to wash it or anything like that, after each hike, if I have been in the hammock soaked with sweat?
