How long do you soak clothes for to get stains out?

How long should I soak nappies and babies clothes to get out the poo stains? Does it make much difference how long it soaks before I was them? How long do you soak clothes for to get stains out?

    I dissolve my napisan in warm water then top up with tepid water before adding the rinsed dirty clothes. I always let them soak 24 hours minimum then wash.

    I actually have a big bucket of soak made up and throw the things that need soaking into it straight away and only take it out when it needs to go in the washing machine.

    I like to soak clothes during the day for 3-5 hours approx. I used to soak overnight but you can get some funky smells if you soak certain things for too long. If stains don’t come out after that I make napisan into a paste with some water, spread it directly on the stain and give it a few mins to work its magic before giving it a scrub and washing.

    I soaked them for 2 hours…I find soaking overnight tends to leave some sort of unpleasant smell…
