Does soapy water pollute soil?

JA Jaygurewitsch asked on 02 June 2020, 06:52

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.
