We study the effects of anisotropic cosmologies on inflation. By properly formulating the field equations it is possible to show that any model that undergoes sufficient inflation will become isotropic on scales grater than the horizon today. Furthermore, we shall show that it takes a very long time for anisotropies to become visible in the observable part of the Universe. It is interesting to note that the time scale will be independent of the Bianchi Model and of the initial anisotropy.
