Don't do 6 at a time, use some fabric softener in the washer, come out great.

You beat me to it! I don't have a rope anywhere on my boat.

I've soaked the cheap stiff lines on my fishboat in fabric softener.

Oh old School and Cuda you old farts! Thanks for the clarification there I don't think I could have gone on without it!

Having read your posts in the past Cuda, I can't believe you don't put yours in the dishwasher with your carburetor parts!

If they do stiffen up, I'm going to put my personal rope in a panties bag.
