Oh no, soap on aquarium?

Ok so I did a dumb thing and used dish soap on my acrylic aquarium. It was the "plant based ingredients" kind. I used vinegar afterwards, which probably would have been better to use in the first place. Is it okay to use, has anyone done this? I'm afraid to use it.

If you have rinsed, rinsed, rinsed & rinsed some more with really hot water & then let air dry completely I think you'll be fine. I've accidentally used soap before & all was well, not something I'd do regularly but once should be OK.

Thanks!

I did rinse a lot and then I put vinegar in a spray bottle and saturated it with that, then rinsed again really well. Everything is ok, I put the betta in there and he's doing just fine! I DO NOT recommend anyone use soap, I will be using vinegar then rinsing very well from now on to clean any aquariums and anything used with my fish.

Thanks :)
