Detergent on plants

Hello All,
I need to know the possible  effect on  outside garden plants (roses, an
orchid)
close to a wall where  window washing,  using a so called bio degradable
kitchen detergent  has been used (as Trix...  ) there is a keen cleaner  in
the family!
The stuff is washed off and there has been lots of foam heading into the
soil.
Have used plain soapy water on occasion to discourage garden pests but
detergent, deriving from petrol I believe - would be bad news for my
plants..
Many thanks for any replies,
Di Allen
