I don't wait. I just thoroughly rinse my hands to get the soap off.

Soap leaves a residue so you really should wash your hands right before a water change using just clean water. And rinse well.

Unless you just worked on your lawn mower, changed the oil in your truck or painted the house, don't use soap.
Just thoroughly rinse up to the elbows with water.

I use soap but I make sure to rinse really well and then dry my hands before I put them into the tank.

There is also full hand gloves that go up to the shoulder. Could be handy if you suspect tuberculosis in the fish or something.
