I can not speak 100% definitively on this, but I can give you my opinion.
I think car wash soap would be fine as lots of people actually use that as clay lube. I think the manufacturer must of known that would happen and planned for it.
However, it specifically says not to use detergent like dawn soap. If it specifically says not to use it, I would steer clear of that.
As for the directions, you're right I don't see that in the instructions. But I think the best thing to do is wash after every panel. Better safe than sorry for sure!
