Very possible that your tensioner (if a spring loaded type) has gone south. When it doesn't apply enough tension, the belts slip until they warm up and grip a bit better and all the fluids in the power steering and such warm up.

Never use belt dressing on serpentine ribbed belts. Not a great idea for any belts actually.

i am pretty positive, belt tensioner housing should have indication marks on it. all newer cars have those. start there.
