If you have a front loading washing machine, you may find that washing doen't work very well. In front loaders, the clothes (or docklines) never "soak", the water just runs through them.

What I do now is soak the lines in laundry detergent and fabric softener in hot water in a large plastic tub or a laundry sink. I soak them overnight or longer and agitate them from time to time. Then I put them in the washer.

Make sure the ends of the lines are secure or they may unravel in the washer.
