You may think the longer you soak your clothes, the more dirt is removed but this is not the case. The more delicate the fabric, the less time it should sit soaking (the exception is in salt water). Twenty minutes is generally enough time for an item to soak. Never soak woolens for more than 20 minutes because the fibers will shrink, even in cool water. And be aware that proprietary products such as NapiSan contain chlorine and can leave yellow marks on wool and silk. It’s better to clean them with cheap shampoo in blood-heat water.
