How old is she?
Soaps these days have a ton of toxins in them.

I'd go with vinegar :)

Please don't.....if you look at what is in soap, there are quite a few chemiclas that are not safe for internal consumption, she could have stomach problems, intestinal problems, etc.

No.  Soap can be dangerous.  Use a non toxic product.  vinegar works great and is natural.  Children have died from having soap put in their mouths.

no. soap has dangerous chemicals in it.

put her in time-out, 3 minutes for every letter in that specific word. or ground her for the day from tv and whatnot.

No, soap in the mouth is dangerous...don't try hotsauce either...try a "zone" if she is old enough to understand..A "zone" is similar to timeout but it is used as a punishment.."Timeout should be used to allow the child to "regroup" but it is not recommended as a punishment.. A "zone" is meant to enforce a specific negative consequence.."you act up" you are out of the game so to speak..much like a penality box in hockey and other sports...Penality Zones should never be enforced for huge periods of times and the child should not be allowed to get up until you know that they understand that their behavior was wrong and why the consequence was enacted...
