Close all desktop notifications

I'd like to hide/dismiss/remove all the notifications that applications like Signal have created.

I know I can create notifications with, for example, notify-send -t 10000 "🤖 Here goes my message". But is there an opposite command, that removes notifications?

I read about org.freedesktop.Notifications.CloseNotification(uint id) but I don't have the message IDs of all the notifications I want to close.

I'm on Arch Linux 5.14.9 running Sway with mako 1.6 as the notification daemon.

While there doesn't seem to be a general command like notify-send to hide all notifications, we can use features of our specific notification daemon, like mako in this case, to hide all notifications:

makoctl dismiss --all
