I don't think that putting the water in your bathtub would be practical, nor safe for future fish. Any detergent/soap will harm your fish, as well as what are you going to do for bathing purposes? The idea of a garbage can or, maybe better yet is a plastic storage container (I'm assuming that the garbage can was metal) might work.
As to the concern with the water's pH, it is often eatsier and you would have more success in choosing fish that can live with the pH of your water. Check out the "Tropical Fish Profiles" tab at the top of the screen. There's a lot of helpful info. Sounds like you've had a bit of a rough start, try to take a deep breath and do some reading on this site to get some better information and don't be afraid to ask any question
