What's this about soaking harps?

I've heard more than once on this list about the practice
of soaking harps before playing in order to loosen the reeds
so they'll bend easier.  (Correct me if I'm wrong)

Anyway, can someone who has done this tell me something about
the process?  Do you literally submerge the whole harp in
a bucket of water?  For how long?
