Cleaning nylon tack?

My cousin who rides English ( I ride Western), her grandma gave her a blue nylon headstall, but she couldn't use it, so she gave it to me. I've been using it about once every week for lessons. My friend made me some blue nylon reins that matched the headstall in color. The reins have gotten kind of stiff at the bottom, and some spots have these dark marks that I think are from dirt. How can I clean these out well? How can I get out the dark spots and get rid of the stiffness? Thanks!

Nylon tack can go in the washing machine(then be hung dry) and can go in the dish washer. Or take a scrub brush, mild soap(like dawn dish soap) and water and scrub.

I've cleaned nylon tack all 3 ways. The easiest I have found is just soap, water, and good ol' fashioned elbow greese.

I think I'd have to just use soap and scrub because the end of the reins have leather slobber straps on them and a leather centerpiece.
