Hmm, why were you bathing your gerbils with water and soap? They really don't need to be bathed like that and it's not going to be good for their coats. Do they smell or something?
Anyways, yup, their instincts should kick in. Not all gerbils will use a sand bath but most will. Sometimes you have to try a couple different kinds of sand/dust bath, though. If they don't seem to understand, you can try rubbing a little bit of the sand into their fur. I've heard of people doing this to get them to start bathing. I don't know if it works since I've never tried it.
