I don't think there is actually "soap" on the pizza stone but the fragrance from the product.
I was given an off brand dish soap six months ago. My cutting board was washed with it. My cutting board smelled like a bouquet of flowers. I didn't really notice the smell until I used it. The veggies that I was cutting did not smell like flowers and were okay. I rinsed everything that I was cutting chunk style. I have this one good large cutting board and two smaller ones. I had to finish on another cutting board. (I don't like the smaller ones because they are too hard.)
I poured white distilled vinegar on my cutting board and scrubbed it with a brush. After I rinsed it, the smell was not as bold. I gave my cutting board the vinegar wash each time before I used it for about three weeks.
The smell is now gone.

I thought your pizza stone was like your cast iron and just a simple wiping off of debis was all that was needed. My older one is has a sheen similar to cast iron and my newer one is just beginning to shine. I do give it a scraping if some cheese happens to bake on to it but they never see water.

Nobody seems to be able to explain it, not the people who work in the places I buy them, and not the manfacturers, but it seems every pizza stone I buy ends up cracking within a few weeks. I've pretty much given up, and now I just fit the broken pieces together, like a jigsaw puzzle, and continue to march.
