    I bought this as a Mother's Day gift. My mother practically lives in the garden during the summer, and is constantly covered in poison ivy rashes. She loves this cleanser, and is no longer covered in band-aids. Thanks Duluth!

      After being in woods I try to use as soon as possible. Sometimes twice a day. If I wait to long to use Tec-nu its not as effective.

      This stuff is easy to apply. If you know you contacted poison ivy, oak or sumac, rub it in for about 2-4 minutes. Takes the nasty oil off, and works great.

        I have been a devotee of Tecnu for a long time, but it is next to impossible to find it in any retail stores. What a happy day to discover a larger size available at Duluth! I've kept 2 32 ounce bottles in stock for the past 2 summers: one at home and one in my car for my Master Gardener projects. I scrub down after working outside, and if I do break out, I immediately scrub the rash which tends to go away in short order. I also use it to wipe down gardening tools, and add it to the washing machine. I can't sing its praises loudly enough. Thanks for supplying a significant size regardless of the cost!

          I spend a lot of time in my garden. Caught poison ivy a couple of years ago, and seem to have developed disposition to the 'itchies' even when not in contact with the the poison weed. When I start to itch, I apply Tecnu to my hands and wrists, rub it around 2 minutes according to directions, and the itch goes away almost immediately. Love its effectiveness.

            I put this on before engaging in Poison Ivy/Sumac removal in our garden and yard. After i'm done with removal I lather up the arms and legs again before getting in a cool shower, followed by some pool time just to be on the safe side. Never had a problem with Poisonous plants b4 this year and once was 2 many times... Never again, thanks to TECNU. The price was really reasonable also. Just check your local area stores and see what they want for a 4 oz bottle of this stuff and you'll agree!

                I have used Tecnu for years. It is highly effective at removing the poison oils that cause rash and related itching. Make sure to wash your gloves with Tecnu as directed to avoid further spread of the oils.

                Comments about 32-oz. Bottle of Tecnu Oak-N-Ivy Cleanser:

                I consider myself to be a poison oak expert. I am in the woods and around it every week and I get it incredibly bad. While there are other great oak and ivy cleanser alternatives to TECNU I find it to be the most effective and least expensive option. After years of spending a fortune on the largest bottles I could find in stores I have started ordering these 32 oz bottles and refilling smaller bottles.

                Use. My advice is to start by carefully stripping off the exposed clothes (you'll want to add a little TECNU to your laundry loads later). After that, use TECNU to clean your hands so you don't continue to spread oils sitting on top of your hands. Then, start with any exposed areas and if you are truly worried, wash everywhere you don't want poison oak, not just where you were exposed. Jump in the shower and make sure you use plenty of water. While I of course don't recommend hot, hot water I don't think you need to torture yourself with cold water either, as some people will recommmend.

                I have learned through experience that whatever incovenience careful cleansing causes is far better than weeks of weeping, pussing and itching misery.

                Two more cents. If you know you are exposed to poison oak in the wild (you brush against it with skin) you are far better off trying to remove the oils IMMEDIATELY (you have a matter of minutes) with whatever you have at your disposal (copious amounts of water and dry dirt) than waiting hours to use TECNU.

                The downsides. TECNU is pertroleum based. Not the healthiest stuff to be putting on all your sensitive tissue or near your eyes. It not only sucks poison oak oils (urishol) out of your pores but also takes your natural moisture with it and it will dry you out.
