The Q&A Archives: Murphy's Oil Soap

Question: What is it in Murphy's Oil Soap that makes it so repellant to squirrels and other animals? Why?

Answer: I think it is the citrus fragrance that they don't like. I can't find out exactly what is in the fragrance but Murphy's Oil Soap is simply a blend of fatty acids (potassium of vegetable oil), alcohol and fragrance.
