covered live rock with towels

I was rearranging my tank and removed my live rock and placed in 5 gallon buckets. I covered the buckets with wet (fresh water) bath towels. Should I be concerened with possible detergent from the towels?

As long as they were previously dry and you decided to wet them (not from washer) you should be ok.

I would use a dechlorinator in the water before hand, you wouldnt want to kill all the bacteria with the chlorine from tap water.
