It is highly unlikely that you would become infected with HIV through contact with vaginal fluids on the condom. HIV is known to be transmitted sexually through anal, vaginal, and oral sex.
Washing with mild soap and warm water after sex is not going to cause any harm. It is not clear if washing after sex will reduce the risk of HIV or other STI transmission, but in certain situations it may be a wise precaution (like coming into contact with blood). Soap and water should render HIV inactive.
