How Do I Care for an External Macrame Plant Hanger?

Macrame plant hangers add some classic charm and appeal to any outdoor area. Produced from braided cords in various materials, colors and fashions, the macrame hangers offer durability and strength for your potted plants, and their layouts can match virtually any decor. They don’t need care aside from occasional cleaning — exposure to dust, soil, water and other materials can dull the substance’s appearance. It’s possible to clean macrame plant holders without causing any harm, but don’t use the washing machine or harsh chemicals, which may fade and weaken the substance.

Remove the pot.

Fill a bucket or sink with water that is cool. Add about 1 teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent each 1/2 gallon of water. Don’t use in case your macrame is colored, laundry detergent which contains bleach.

Place the macrame plant holder from the water and agitate it gently with your hands to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. If it’s stained, then let it soak for about 20 or 30 minutes before agitating again.

Drain the water out of bucket or the sink and wash it.

Agitate and swish the macrame plant holder to wash out any detergent residue.

Drain the water out of bucket or the sink. Squeeze out any excess water out of the plant holder. Hang it up in a well-ventilated region to air dry before rehanging the plant.
