Is it okay to soak dentures with soft relines overnight?

I just got my full set of dentures three weeks ago and my first soft reline a day ago. My dentist advised my not to use any adhesives for at least 48 hours but said nothing about soaking, so I soaked them overnight in plain cold water like I did in the weeks prior.  They seem fine but looking at some things I've seen online has me worried. Was this a bad idea? Any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated.

I was told after 24-48 hours you could soak them in cleaner overnight. I did mine after 48 hours and never had a problem.
