Outdoor Bath Water on Old Oak Tree Ok ?

We have an area near our RV, where we set up an old clawfoot tub ( countryside area). We run cool water into for hot days when working on RV and place. Will occasional bubble bath water hurt the old oak tree ?

Wasn't sure, or is there a bubble bath that would be best ? I used Mr. Bubble scent free. This is a huge oak tree, very well established.

Many thx for any help.

I have never heard of soapy water harming any plants. The description setting does give a nice visual however.

Soap is an insecticide so be careful,where it runs. You don't want to kill bees or other good insects.

I would use a biodegradable camp soap.

Some soaps are ferterlizers.. In large quanity they can do damage but.... Not even if you bathed every hour on the hour could you hit that quanity. Bath soap should not be a problem.

a large oak tree's tap roots will be a lot deeper than your bathwater will penetrate.

A mild soap solution has been used by gardeners for decades to control insects.
