How to wash impure clothing?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


I used to wash my semen soaked clothes with other clothes in a manner that I ist put all clothes in a bucket adding detergent and keeping for several hours. Then taking clothes out washing one by one with soap and wring. Then washing again with water till clean but not taking care of three times wash and wring. 

I want confirm if clothes are pure. If impure what about my prayers from long years and I have lead many prayers in between. What’s ruling for me now. Can I follow other madhab in the same. 

Thanking you.

صحيح مسلم دار احياء التراث  (1/ 203)

الفتاوى الهندية (1/ 44)

الْمَنِيُّ إذَا أَصَابَ الثَّوْبَ فَإِنْ كان رَطْبًا يَجِبُ غَسْلُهُ وَإِنْ جَفَّ على الثَّوْبِ أَجْزَأَ فيه الْفَرْكُ

مختصر القدوري (ص: 21)

والمني نجس يجب غسل رطبه فإذا جف على الثوب أجزأ فيه الفرك

بدائع الصنائع في ترتيب الشرائع (1/ 85)

وصار كالمني إذا أصاب الثوب أنه يطهر بالفرك عند الجفاف؛ لأن المني شيء لزج لا يداخل أجزاء الثوب
