I have web straps on all of my kayaks which seem to get dried out and stiff. Has anyone found the best treatment product to clean and lubricate them with to make them slide and operate easier?

Just wash them with dish soap & water.
And definitely don't lubricate them!|

Straps need friction to function correctly.
Rinse them frequently|

Dirt, salt water, and other particles will make a strap stiff and therefore hard to pass through the cam buckles. The buckles should be kept clean regardless.
