To prevent the rings of your hammock from getting entangled while hand washing, grasp both ends of the hammock and fold it in half. Securely tie the hammock together just below the hanging rings. Tie your hammock again at the opposite end and in the middle. Put your tied up hammock in a large sink or bathtub filled with water and mild detergent (no bleach). Agitate your hammock until it's clean, then untie and spread flat to dry.
