did you buff the wax off before you got wet dirt on it? If its a decent wax it should last 30-60 days

Depends on the recommended cure time for your wax. And unless you use really strong soap that's not normally used for cars, it shouldn't be an issue.

You can't hurt with spraying off most of the dirt. After that you'll be the best judge of whether it stills needs a wash. Sometimes dust just runs off after a wax but heavier dirt doesn't.
