You should not: Use dish soap for baths, only mild soaps with moisturizers like Dove or Aveeno. This is especially true for the mucosal surfaces of your body, since they can get "allergic" or inflamed from drying agents like dish soap. If you are concerned about infections in the nether regions, keep an extra healthy lifestyle and only use mild cleansers in order not to change your vaginal pH too much. ...Read more

The virus is not transmitted by hand-genital contact, and certainly not by contact with non-genital areas like the thighs or anywhere else. Dish soap would kill the virus, but there would be no risk even if you didn't wash. ...Read more
