How to Use Irish Spring as Garden Pest Repellent
If you want a more natural way of repelling garden pests, look no further than your bathroom vanity. Irish Spring has been a gardener's best friend for decades, because it can be effective at keeping plant eating pests out of your garden!
You can find Irish Spring at your local dollar store, making this a budget friendly task!
Grab a grater at the dollar store while you are there. It will be perfect for grating the soap.
We sprinkled some around recently planted seeds, so they would have a chance to grow before the critters found them!

Yes. The rabbits and deer are eating everything including a beautiful hemlock tree. I spray frequently but can't keep up with them. I am going to plant marigolds everywhere and buy a dozen Irish Spring soap bars.
Does the odor from the soap not penetrate the food?
Won't it make the veggies taste soapy when they finally start growing especially if it rains & gets the soap wet & foamy?
