It is completely dependant on your snake but 48hrs is usually plenty long enough as you get to know your individual you will find that the Rules don't mean anything as your snake and you are individuals..
My advice is treat most of the ''rules'' as rules of thumb unless of course they make total complete and utter sense like guards on bulbs for instance ......

This ^^
Some of my snakes are okay to handle the following day, but others I leave even longer, it depends on the size of the meal.
