There is a perception that when it comes to aquariums, soap is to be avoided at all cost. Of course, fish can't handle soap as it really messes with the whole gil O2 extraction thing....
When I said that here and there I run my plastic plants and rocks through the dishwasher (with white vinegar) some were aghast that some residual soap could contaminate my tank. "The sky is falling, the sky is falling".
When you wash your hands, does the soap rinse off? How about your hair? How about your dishes?
Rinse the tank really well and you should be just fine.
