You don't need the fabric softener...just throw em in the washer with soap.
They are nylon...not cotton.
NOTE: NYLON DEGRADES IN SUNLIGHT over time and loses much strength. If these are docklines in a protected harbor...probably no big deal...but if they are MOORING lines holding your boat to a mooring in a harbor...I'd suggest spending the $30 bucks.
Kon-bawa!
