type of soap safe for sensitive areas ?

My girl is in heat, wiping her with just water isn't cutting it and I am not at home (we're visiting my family) so I don't have my puppy sensitive shampoo. Would a gentle face soap be okay to clean her parts? or some other suggestion? It's unscented. I'm worried that body wash or hand soap would be too abrasive.

When Kaleb broke out in a rash the vet told me to use dawn dish soap. I just mixed some in water, washed him and made sure it was rinsed off and dried him. The same soap the clean oil off of birds and wildlife.

I used to have a lab/pit/Sharpe mix and she has the worst sensitive skin ever. Used his shampoo and added. A lot of.vitamin e oil to it. So its pretty Much a runny shampoo now instead of think. It worked wonders!

Any kind of mild facial wash should be fine, but it's easier to use baby wipes.
