    Poison Ivy defense, costing no more than soap.

    I don't have an extensive self-test on this yet, but I Will be testing it as I found it convincing: How to never have a serious poison ivy rash again! | Extreme Deer Habitat

    The Clif Notes version: Wash within 2-8 hrs, Everywhere the oil from the plant could have touched, including transfers from your hands or inanimate objects. The trick is not the soap (although the specialty soaps were better than plain bar soap, and Dawn was better than either), but rubbing with a washcloth while washing and not missing spots.

    RNPrepper posted a good link to a Tippy Tap hand washing system for waterless camps; I'm in the process of building one of those for the BOL. That thread pairs well with this one, eh? Kind of like white wine and ….o heck, I wouldn't know, like beer with pretzels.

    washing a soon as you can helps a bunch you got to get the oils off.
    fortunately for me I got nailed by poison sumac when I was a kid and never had much of a problem since.
    nothing to see here, move along.
