Just woundering. Really dont feel like running to the store to get somthing to wash my car with. Is the lemon sent dishwasher detergent ok to use?
If your talking about DishWASHER soap and not DishWASHING then you''re really asking for trouble. The stuff that goes in diswashers is an abrasive. The liquid stuff that you use in the sink is different and others have covered that. Don't use it.

In high-school I got a job washing semi trucks and all we ever used was Crystal White lemon scented dish soap and I've used it ever since. Of course I do wax and polish my vehicles every three months here in the desert, so if the soap is removing the wax, it's getting replenished quite regularly.
You can use dishwashing soap. It won't harm your paint, but it will strip the wax! So, if you plan on waxing your car every time you wash it, then it is ok!! I use it to strip old wax, but then not again until I wash wax again.
Dish washer soap is different from dish washing soap. The stuff that goes into a dish washer is very harsh, it has to be to get food particles off without scrubbing. While I'd use dish washing soap without hesitation, I sure wouldn't use the stuff meant for use in an automatic dish washer.
I use handsoap from the bathroom haha. I just squirt a little hear, and a little there on the wet Jeep. Than lather it all up with a wash mit! Rinse and it looks great. Your not going to mess anything up. But if its an older jeep, get it buffed and waxed and you'll be amazed! Im an auto detailer BTW
