... if I don't remove/clean it?
Being retired I use my hammocks a couple times a week mostly in my local woods for lunch from the hammock and enjoy an hour or two of reading after lunch.
I am always getting pine tree sap on the tree straps. There's a type of pine trees in CO that just ooze sap so I have learned to avoid those.
Do you guys think the sap will slowly dissolve the polyester threads?
I've heard one can use peanut butter to dissolve the sap but then you have the smell of peanut butter and that might attract bears.
My other concern is any solvent strong enough to dissolve pine sap could also attack the straps as well.
So for now I'm just leaving it and hoping for the best.
