Of course you can i did it multiple times.. But be aware though, that you don't apply it too much, just make it bubbly with your hand and scrub it with your hand. Plus be aware that oleophobic layer might get removed because of the soap.. But for the phone jtself, it will survive

I wouldn't take to your device with soap. Also salt is bad news too...

The membrane is semi-permeable. Meaning there are microscopic holes in the water proof covering. soap and salt will make the holes larger, meaning water will get through.
