    Storage For WBBB

    So I just got back from the BWCA and had a great hang but now I am clueless how to clean it and how to store it for next time? Dish soap and let dry in sun then pack back into its sack ok?

    Unless your hammock got really dirty, say got into some mud or the like most of us don't clean them. And unless it's wet no real need to let it dry out. I sometimes will lay it out on the floor of a spare room to air out for a bit once back from a trip, then cram it back into the stuff sack. If you really do need to clean off dirt and grime then a damp sponge should wipe off most surface dust and dirt.

    I normally hand wash my hammocks(they are very dear to me) with normal detergent, then hang them in the carport or somewhere shielded from the sun(to much exposure to sun/UV light will lead to a premature breakdown of the nylon). But keeping it is it's stuff sack is ok.

    Edit: take off the suspension, it makes it easier.
