I guess you could try steaming them.

mrsdevries:  My only suggestion would be to flex them around a lot to break up whatever is making them stiff. Put them in a bowl and crunch them up in your hands continually while you watch TV or seomthing.

If your own your own dryer, maybe tumble dry on low for a few minutes in a tied pillow case with a tennis ball.  I have done this with things that have come over starched (dryer with tennis ball) and it worked.

Yeah, wash or rinse a few by hand to see if they’ll bleed. If they don’t you could try fabric softener and water mixture too.
