    Thatís what I felt like every time I rolled into a town stop on my Appalachian Trail thru hike. So it got me wondering..... do you ever wash your hammock? How?

    That, good sir is the best question since ďpee or not to pee from a hammockĒ. And come to think of it, I donít think I have ever washed any of my hammocks and I went to hammocks about 5-6 years ago. This is going to get interesting.

    I wash mine every other trek. But I hike in the tropical jungles, and my trips can be 2 weeks long. So itís inevitable to get some sweat and grime on the hammock.

    I use a mild detergent most of the time, and once every several months I dunk it in a bucket of Sink the Stink diluted in water.

    No wash ... but then again I always sleep in a sleeping bag liner when in hammock ... also helps keeping top quilt clean. Also biodegradable wet wipes.

    All that said, I also try to not let hammock touch ground.

    Wash your hammocks, especially if you’re selling. No really.

    I recently washed one in a sink with warm water and a good squirt of Dawn.

    This particular hammock (Darien #6235) had at least 40 nights on it and barely any dirt/oils came out of it, so I'm thinking that for me it takes a long time to get one dirty enough to seriously require a wash.
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"
