      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
      camping
      or in your back yard.
