I wash film with an air bubbles + water device, actually called... you
guess,  film washer. This very cheap and effective thing is sold at any
serious photo store around the corner.

If that is hard to find or there's no corners where you live it can be
easily built up by yourself.

I over-wash for 15/20 min, yes... the thing maker states film is actually
washed out in less than 10 min.
