In reply to:
I cannot comment on long-term, but for short-term, chlorine bleach does not seem to affect nylon.

Chlorine has a cumulative affect on nylon. Each exposure to chlorine will continue to degrade nylon's material properties.

Repeated washing with chlorine is certainly not good for the material in the short or long term.

If this is a non-life support application, than don't worry too much about it. Just realize it will break sooner. If you plan to climb with or walk under something supported by the slings, I would not recommend exposing them to chlorine at all.
