there is micro stuff that gets out stink in hiker stuff.
I don't have the name of it handy right now.
DO NOT USE OXYCLEAN it has bleaching action
and bleach weakens canvas and nylon fabrics.
Do a web reach for enzyme odor remover for camping equipment. That should
get you a product that is safe to use on canvas..
The hammock must be heavy with it made of canvas so I'd only use it car
or in your back yard.
