Using Dawn Dishsoap on Plants to Deter Deer

I heard that you could use Dawn on plants outside so deer would not eat them. How much should I use?

I know the recipe for a bug repellent is 1 tsp dawn per spray bottle full of water, but I do not know if this would work on deer. I have heard that Ivory bar soap and Irish Spring bar soap hung in a piece of hose and staked out around the garden or from a tree, keeps them away.You have to mist it every once in a while, if they get dried out.
