If you bleach it once that will help too. I've also noticed that my gi's feel good if I don't overdo it on the soap when washing them.
I heard somewhere that fabric softener actually reduces the absorption of the fabric... so you may want to check on this before doing that.
Don't know about the bleach -- I would think that would make it less durable? Probably once wouldn't make too much difference, gi's are pretty tough....
