Any new ideas for rejuvenating old three strand nylon line that works?

Rope stretches and the internal friction and compression tightens onto itself. I am concerned that fabric softener would make the strands slippery and may cause a loss of strength. But thats me over thinking things.
But I do wash my rope. I just toss it in a front loader washing machine no bag just a little soap and extra rinse.. then gently dry but not compleatly.
