Wet-room screed -will soap/shampoo cause a problem

Good Morning All

I will shortly be screeding a couple of wet-rooms in my renovation . I intend to use one whilst the other is drying out, tile the other one and then swap usage.

My question is : is it likely that any residues of soap/shampoo will get in the screed and will that cause any problem with the adhesive ? I will be using a good quality powder-based flexible adhesive.

Secondly , I will be having visitors for a week or so during this period using the other shower room. Will a couple of normal showers per day add a lot /any extra drying time to the rule of thumb one week/cm ?

Thanks in advance

You need to leave the grout a couple of weeks to fully cure before using either shower. Plus the floors should really be tanked
