Mopani driftwood been soaking for days, still leeching tannins

A few days ago I purchased some Mopani driftwood from Petco and I've had it soaking in warm water since, changing out the water every 3 - 5 hours. The driftwood is STILL leeching out crazy amounts of tannins, to the point where it would be very noticeable in my aquarium.

Any way that I can expedite this process?

Agreed with the others, boiling will speed up the process. A few days isn't a very long soak, so if it's too big for boiling, or you can't boil for some other reason, plan on another week or two in the bucket.
