Here's my method.

Here's my method

#1 Multiple mesh bags, one for each line.

#2 Front load washing machine

#3 Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite

#4 Warm setting & extra spin

#5 Extra wash cycle, same as above, but this time with NO soap!! You want to be sure ALL the soap is out of the lines or if it rains.........Slippery!!

#6 Remove, untangle and let air dry
