I let it sit until the suds are gone, then squeeze out wool, empty sink and repeat but usually leave overnight the second time.
To dry you roll up in a towel and squeeze then lay flat or hang to dry. I just did 10+ longies at once, and had to use all my chairs and every other surface to hang wool. lol It can take over a day to dry.
That is really the easiest way, though some days I want to get some sheep and let my boys ride bareback to get it that way. Sorry, I'm feeling goofy tonight, though it might work, it will probably upset to many people to make it worth testing.
Mama to 2 boys and a girl, married to a big boy, with 2 gerbils a bunch of fish. for my sanity.
