Cleaning clothes is one of the utmost important work in any household.
What my experience is soaking of clothes in a thick solution of detergents is one of the prerequisites for getting good result.
Once the clothes get soaked for quite a good time say 30 minutes then factually speaking they are already cleaned to a good extent.
Now when we place them in machine and wash they are cleaned very nicely.
