The man in the video said "muscle spray" - meaning Deep Heat, Tiger Balm or other stuff you apply to aching muscles. There's loads of supermarket products available. We used to suffer from cat invasions in our garden and tried everything to keep them away - grated Wrights Coal Tar soap (looked like Red Leicester cheese sprinkled on the borders); teabags soaked with Olbas Oil; wax cones with camphor hung on the fence; Vicks dabbed on fence posts. We still had cats, but all of them had lovely clear sinuses as a result. In the end we moved. Electronic cat scarer failed in new garden - we could hear it even if the moggies didn't.  Water pistol was best (and most satisfying) deterrent but we have never had the time to stand on guard waiting for the cats to stroll by.

Try halving some lemons and leaving them in your patch.  Lemon is poisonous to cats and they don't like the smell.
