I'd be interested in taking a couple more steps to try to get a bit more life out of my lines.
I'm no expert but it goes like this. After a trip I soak my line, stripped into one side of a sink, in warm water with a little mild dish soap for around 10-15 minutes. I then use a sponge or similar product and fold it in half, applying a bit of pressure to it as I strip it through into the other sink with fresh water. I rinse it well and make certain no soap residue can possibly be on there.
I then dry it by stripping it through a very soft towel in my hand, letting it fall on a clean towel. I then use a fly line dressing (I use the Airflo Whiz Lube applicator and reel it through that). I have also used the RIO Agent X cleaning kit with great results.
