I don't soak mine at all. I generally just give it a good scrubbing/rinse in hot water, then pile it into the sink and pour a big pot of boiling water over it. It sits there maybe a couple of minutes, then I let the water drain and wait a few more minutes before handling the hot rocks.

Cool, I cleaned it off. Let it soak for 24 hours then scrubbed it again under very hot water(my hands still hurt lol) then put it in

What ive been doing with mine is spray them down in the shower, soak them in a bucket of really hot water for a few hours, then do tons of scrubbing till everything is off it and till the water i rinse it with comes off clean.
