washing halyards / line / sheets
I bought an older sailboat that's in pretty good condition. However, the halyards, lines and sheets are grungy but are still usable. I don't have the money to buy new but would like to wash them and perhaps make them softer. I'll probbly take them to a laundrymat with the big round sideways washers but don't know if one type of soap or a softener is better to use. Need advice.
