Does anyone know the brand of soap deer don't like that I can put around my garden to keep them out?
No but I will say this I have friends who urinate around their gardens, maybe this is a better option since it is free ;0)
Try fishing line on stakes 3-4 feet high. They will not see it and it will spook them.
It is supposed to be Irish Spring, but I can attest that it does not work. Neither does Moth Balls. I have had good results with diluted hot sauce and believe it or not--netting that you get at the fabric store. Look in the Bridal isle in the fabric store for the netting. There is something about the smell or looks that they do not like.
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap diluted with water is an excellent deer and squirrel repellent.
Not sure if soap is your best option. There are some good tips that people left, but here is what works for me. I am in the Rocky Mountains so deer are always a problem. Here's my method of attack:
1. If possible, plant Marigolds around the area where you want deer-free. These aromatic flowers are very unpleasent for deer and will keep them away!
2. Place an invisable barrier around your garden. A strong fishing line can be used as a fence around your protected area. As mentioned before, the deer will run into the wire and become spooked.
3. Urine. Deer hate the smell of human urine. Depending on the size of your garden or space you are protecting, you may have to collect a lot of urine. I've tried this before with good results. I saved a couple gallons of Urine and then spread it around the area I was protecting. The deer will mostly stay away, but there always is the one that is really hungry. This method works best when you are using the Fishing line method in conjunction.
Best of luck to you

Have you, or anyone you know of, ever had a close encounter? When did it take place? Were there any drugs involved? Did you tell the authorities? What race of aliens were involved? Was the experience angelic or demonic in nature? Did the ones who made contact with you seem good or evil? Did you...
