    Does anyone know whether or not it is safe to inject a solution intravenously that contains some kind of soap?

    Intravenous injections should only be conducted by health professionals. All injections are potentially dangerous, carrying a small, but finite risk. I have no specific knowledge of the consequences of injecting a small quantity of soap. It does not sound at all sensible. Even if I did have specific knowledge I would not reply here as it would infer approval of the methodology without knowledge of the context.. That would be irresponsible.
    I am curious as to why you are asking such a question. [/b]

    Surfactants (soap) interact strongly with lipophiles, micelles and cell walls. This is why surfactants and soap make your eyes burn and turn red from contact. Injecting them into the circulatory system would have the same effect on the entire system. It could be fatal.

    Sylilene, you are exactly right. Assuring the sterility of such solutions, which are NEVER injected in medical procedures, would also militate against the injection. It would be very dangerous. One must ask oneself what the purpose would be?
