wbrakman is on a distinguished road
I've just used a big bucket and soaked my old lines for a couple of days in water with Joy brand dish soap followed by another soaking with downey fabric softener. Good results.

I'd be a little worried that a commercial clothes washer could chafe and work the lines, causing them to weaken. Good luck.
