4. How do I care for my macrame wall hangings after they’re finished?

One of the main tips for properly caring for your artwork is to avoid direct sunlight or moisture for prolonged periods. This prevents color fading and damage to your cords. To keep your macrame looking its very best, gently dust it with a soft brush or cloth as needed. 

When washing, only rinse it under cool water. Avoid wringing, as it may damage or get tangled; instead, roll it up with a dry towel to absorb the water. Then, air dry it on a dry towel. Avoid using heat or sunlight, which will cause the wood to brittle and damage your precious work. And you’re done!
