Comments about Tecnu Outdoor Skin Cleanser, 12 oz:
This product stops spread and dries out poison ivy/oak/sumac. I use it when I shower. Put it on the area, leave it for a few minutes, and then wash it off. The way it works is that is gets rid of the poison ivy/oak oils from the lesions and dries them out. It does't take long to use and is extremely effective. All-in-all it is the best way I have found to treat this problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Most effective when used within the first two hours after exposure or as soon as rash appears. Shake well before each use.
Before the rash has started:
Apply to exposed unwetted skin within 2-8 hours after exposure to poisonous plants
Rub vigorously for 2 minutes to remove oil and other contaminants from skin. If hyper-sensitive, wash entire body with Tecnu
Rinse skin clean with cool running water or wipe off with a cloth. Repeat
As soon as rash appears:
Apply to affected skin and surrounding areas. For best results, apply to entire body. Rub in for 2 minutes, but avoid breaking the skin
Rinse with cool, running water to remove Tecnu and poison oils. If itching persists reapply, then rinse in a very warm shower (not a bath)
Towel dry gently. Repeat as necessary and before retiring
Pets: Saturate a cloth with Tecnu and wipe down the pet's coat. Follow with a pet shampoo and water bath. Tecnu can also remove skunk spray from your pet's fur
Clothing: Saturate unwetted clothing with Tecnu in a bucket for several minutes. Launder by itself as usual with detergent and hot water. Check for color fastness by testing a concealed corner of the fabric
Tools: Wipe down with a cloth saturated with Tecnu. Wash with soap and water
Tree sap/pitch: Apply Tecnu directly and rub until stain dissolves to clean pitch, tree sap, road tar, grass stains and other substances from skin, tools and clothing
