I checked back to the beginning of this forum but couldn't find any answers to my question: how to clean soiled sheets and lines. I just purchased a 35 footer which was moored near a large construction site. All of the lines are very dirty; none of them were covered.
What would be the easiest way to clean them without dismantling anything?
Washing machine when the wife isnt looking! However, if you have metal hard eyes, make sure they are wrapped up in some towelling, cause the wife wont appreciate the dents in the washing machine drum (or use a laundrette) but dont power dry!
I coil my lines loosly about the same circumference as the inside of the washing machine drum and tie the bundle loosly with light line in six or eight places to prevent the coil from becoming a big knot and let the machine do the work. I hang the coil to dry.
