I'll stick with the 3-4 days if you washed it until it was "pretty clean"
The filter will do the rest. I washed mine until it was crystal clean and had no problems at all. Then the next time around, I didn't go that far, figuring maybe I did wash too much the first time. My water was cloudy for 4 days, maybe even 5. If you're that impatient, you can buy Purigen by Seachem. It's apparently amazing at clearing cloudy water instantly. You need to put it in your filter. It's very small, so you need a mesh bag. It would replace carbon, if you use that.
