For the current old sails, take them out on a blowy day close to your home port and work them hard, perhaps a day whan you can find a weather shore.
If you can, talk another boat into coming along with you in case things go wrong.
Oversheet them, undersheet them, make them flap, choose all points of sail.
They mightn't be too bad.
