Or a bucket for the water.

You can use dish soap, shampoo, liquid hand soap, etc to wash her with, y'know....

LOL. Well I had thought that I heard you shouldn't use hand or dish soap to wash a car due to certain chemicals in them that would harm the paint. I may be wrong but I would go get the stuff from the store.

Dawn is what Zaino and Liquid Glass, and I belive Mothers and Meguiars suggest you use to strip wax from your car. No soap should hurt your paint, but some may have additives that will leave a film. But, in a pinch.....

Believe it or not, when I got a car painted many years ago, the body shop manager told me that they use Baby shampoo. He told me that it was gentle enought that it wouldn't hurt the paint or remove the wax..........Hey, that'* what a body shop told me.........I use what ever'* on sale........Right now it'* Rain Dance.
