    You dont use braided lines for anchor ropes. No stretch, so they snatch at the boat. And generally they are sinking lines, which lay on the bottom and catch under every bommie in the area.
    Yachties like bright work on their boats so fender ropes and mooring lines might get the brush treatment.
    Or otherwise you could be constantly on the move cleaning haliyards and reefings

    These are generally for kernmantle climbing ropes, because they pick up dust/grime/aluminum oxide (from belay equipment) and can get really dirty after significant use. The dirt itself isn't usually detrimental to the performance of the rope, except in extreme cases, but dirty ropes make for dirty hands, and dirty hands are bad for grip.
