Jib sheets stiff

My jib sheets are getting really stiff and they occasionally kink at the fairlead block near the winch during a tack. I am always carefully coil them up and hang them at the bow after every sail. They are fairly new but I don't think they are the highest quality.

Are there any tricks out there to soften them up a bit?
