Strickly speaking, there would be no reaction between bleach and standard dish soap (that is in many disinfection solutions not containing Ammonia ie: dishwasher soap), but read the label carefully. Also, one person's dash is another's 1/4 cup. The bleach should be used sparingly if you really think it is necessary. I would save it for cleaning the mold in the frig.
Remember, bleach is not a degreaser it is a germ killer. If you are looking for a degreaser, then vinegar is a better choice. The hot water is more than adequate to disinfect the tips.
