What are you guys using to wash the lines?

How often to you wash your lines per season?

I use a little ivory dishsoap in cold water and swish around in a bucket. Then rinse with freshwater.

I know some people use rags or cleaning pads, etc as well.

I am asking because I have had a hell of a time keeping my freshwater floating lines in good shape over the last couple of years. They do get a lot of use but I should be getting more than a season out of a "premium" 4wt line that really doesn't take much abuse.

TIA
