Title : Tecnu Original Poison Oak & Ivy Outdoor Skin Cleanser, 32 Ounce
ASIN : B0034CZ3M6
Description :

Wash with Tecnu to remove poison ivy, oak and sumac oils. Simply apply Tecnu to dry skin, rub vigorously for two minutes, and rinse with cool water or wipe off with a cloth. When used within 8 hours after exposure to poison oak, ivy or sumac, Tecnu can remove urushiol oil before the rash begins.

Once a poison plant rash has started, washing with Tecnu helps remove any free oil on the skin; allowing the natural healing process to begin without the possible spreading of poison ivy or oak (re-contamination).

Poison ivy and oak oil can also spread from contaminated clothing, shoes, gloves, tools and pets. Since urushiol does not evaporate, it can remain on these items for months or even years at a time. Use Tecnu Original to wash off the oil and avoid a poison ivy or oak rash from secondary contact. Also removes skunk odor, sap and pitch from skin, grease, grime and cable gel.

Tecnu can be applied directly to clothing or gear and then washed in a normal manner. Please do a small patch test on clothing before using on entire article.

Features :

  • The original product to remove poison ivy and oak irritant (oil) from skin
  • Used by outdoor and forestry workers for decades
  • Also, removes skunk odor from dogs and removes tree sap from skin
  • Use to remove rash-causing toxin from gear, tools, clothing and pets.
  • A must-have for gardeners, hikers and mountain bikers

Review : Way fewer cases of poison ivy since I started using it! Highly recommended.

I’m a weekend warrior (well. Since retiring, technically, I’m a "week warrior", but that just doesn’t have the same ring, does it?) who’s highly susceptible to poison ivy & oak, and I’ve been a big fan of Tecnu since I started using it in 2014. I’ve caught at least 75% fewer, probably closer to 90% fewer cases of poison ivy since I started rinsing with Tecnu after yard work. I’ve also found that if I do catch poison ivy, that rinsing daily with Tecnu and cold water before re-applying hydrocortisone (or your topical medicine of choice) actually helps the rash clear up sooner. That’s my experience, at least. I don’t know if Tecnu claims that. I hate getting poison ivy, so Tecnu is an essential part of my yard work cleanup!
