if soap water is continously drained in soil, the soil becomes grey and becomes temporarily unsuitable for plantation. but once rain comes, it dilutes the sopa and the soil will be ready to plant again. too much of soap water's concentration is neglibile for the soil to produce plants from the seeds.

Soap water does affect the soil. And the spot where washing activities happen over and over without drain the grey water seeps in and the soil becomes temporarily unsuitable for plantation. But once rain comes it dilutes the soap and spread it over the area such that the soap concentration is negligible.

As you have asked about people washing and utensil I have assumed that we are talking here at small scale and not industrial scale.
