I accidentally used soap to clean my pot, is this going to be an issue?

So long as you did not let the soap sit in the pot for too long (over 10 minutes) this should not be a problem. Rinse the pot thoroughly and then you can use it for cooking. In case you did let soap sit in the pot for more than 10 minutes, rinse the pot thoroughly and steam 1-2 cups of water in the pot for 15 to 20 minutes. After this you can continue to use the pot for cooking.
