I've let mine soak overnight before, so I really don't think a couple hours would hurt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

If you are soaking in plain water, you can leave them for many hours. If you are adding anything to the water, I wouldn't go more than 4-6 hours.

I soak em in water with a bit of borax until I remember to spin them, sometimes 1/2hr, sometimes overnight. Works for me!
