I can't imagine warm soapy water having any negative effects on GS plastic, metal or resin.
But it may be an idea to test this, greenstuff a spare piece of sprue, using vasaline like you normally would, let it set and then wash it.
Takes some time but lessens the risk.
Actually it's hot water rather than soap that may warp resin. Especially GW resin. Plastic and metal don't give a damn tho (I believe even boiling water can't damage plastic, however bases WILL bend as they are made from crappy kind of plastic)
I use denatured alcohol for metal and plastic (it also is good for stripping models from paint), however I don't know how it may react with GW resin - I had some problems with few recasts (it was all rubbery).
Alcohols are great for cleaning out oil and sweat.
Remember to clean models with water after soap bath!
