No, just lukewatm water with a bit of soap rubbed off into it. I don't use dishwashing detergent or anything like that, but just normal body soap.
We don't have deer here, but birds are the main problem with any crops here. Netting works to a degree, but we have a lot of larger parrots that tear
through it. Kangaroos generally don't come close to the house enough to be a bother.
What I find most times works is hang blank CDs or DVDs from string in the trees or near crops. As they spin in the wind, the light refracting scares
the birds off.
The only other problem we have here is snakes, but I have several snake alarms. They look like little solar lights, but they vibrate, and are supposed
to keep snakes away. They cost about $25 each, I got mine from ebay.
As for deer, I don't know for sure, but maybe a small compressed air cannon may be enough to startle them?
