Who knew Irish Spring soap was good for more than just keeping you cleaning and smelling good?
As it turns out, the strong-smelling soap can be used to keep herbivore pests like deer away from your garden.
All you have to do cut up a bar of soap into pieces, stuff the pieces in socks and staple them to stakes.
The final step is to plant the stakes throughout your garden, and that's all it takes to keep the pests away. Curbly reccomended scattering some extra soap bits along the ground in the garden as well.
The bonus to this trick is that it keeps the garden smelling fresh!
Next time you're looking to keep pests away from your produce, look no further than a bar of Irish Spring.
