  • I sometimes forget when I soak clothes and it could be up to an hour or 2 before I remember . I like the laundry to be clean and don’t like outstanding washing . My mother used to soak in the buckets for a while before she washed them if stained .



  • Napisan 1 day soak! There are some really interesting comments on this!



  • 48 Hours is a good soak without a doubt!!



  • 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 try to soak clothes overnight at least



  • i found 48 hours to work best for me



  • 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.



  • there are some good comments here



  • I soak my kids clothes overnight.



  • Some good advice there below.



  • Depends on the stain, but a Good rule of thumb is over night



  • I usually soak overnight and have never had any problems



  • i like to soak over night



  • 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.



  • How long did you end up soaking it for?
