Tecnu is 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:
1. Apply Tecnu to exposed unwetted skin within 2-8 hours after exposure to poisonous plants.
2. Rub vigorously for 2 minutes to remove oil and other contaminants from skin. If hyper-sensitive, wash entire body with Tecnu.
3. Rinse skin clean with cool running water or wipe off with a cloth. Repeat.
As soon as rash appears:
1. Apply Tecnu to affected skin and surrounding areas. For best results apply to entire body. Rub in for 2 minutes but avoid breaking the skin.
2. Rinse with cool running water to remove Tecnu and poison oils. If itching persists, reapply Tecnu, then rinse in a very warm shower (not a bath).
3. Towel dry gently. Repeat as necessary and before retiring.
To clean: 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 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.

The instructions on the bottles tell you that you should wash ASAP. But I can vouch that it works *even after a day or two*! The trick is NOT to wash once and think it's done. Every time the itch returns, use Technu again.
And when you do use it, you MUST use it along with soap. Technu seems to bond with the oil of poison ivy, but to completely remove the oil, you must first scrub with Technu (a thin coating of Technu on your skin is sufficient, but make sure you rub/scrub for a few minutes at least to get the stuff into the wrinkles and creases in your skin.) Then scrub well with soap (perhaps a few times). Sometimes I use a piece of tissue (which doesn't absorb a huge amount of Technu and isn't too rough on the already irritated skin) to help me scrub.
But remember to re-apply each time the itch returns, and to clean surfaces of tools, door handles, and clothing if necessary, with this stuff. My experiences have been: You don't need a huge amount of Technu each time, but make sure Technu comes into full contact with surfaces that have poison ivy oil on. Repeated applications of Technu may sound bothersome to some people, but, if you are as allergic as I am to poison ivy, you will go to any lengths to keep your body from getting out of wack--and no other remedies I have tried, troublesome or not, have worked as well as Technu.
I have also read that cool/cold water is best for this situation as warm water opens the pores and allows the irritant(s) to get further into the skin. Don't know if this is correct, but it works for me.
Before dressing: put something on my skin to help keep the oil from bonding in case it gets through. I actually use waterproof sunscreen, even on areas which will be under clothing, in case any oil gets through.
Dress well: I wear ordinary sneakers, with two pairs of heavy socks. I wear two layers of pants: a pair of cotton warmups underneath some fatigue-type pants. A long-sleeve cotton shirt. For gloves, I bought the heavy rubber chemical-resistant-type (facilitates cleanup) and the oil cannot soak through.
Timing: If you "know" you are exposing yourself to poison oak, do not do it for more than 2-3 hours, just in case any gets through.
Clean-up: The FIRST thing you should do is have a can of mineral spirits (paint thinner) and a rag. As others have noted, the oil is like a lacquer that dries on your skin and won't wash off with soap and water. Start by soaking the rag and cleaning any tools you used. I used to use Tecnu to clean my tools, but I realize that's not necessary, the paint thinner works just fine. Now wipe your gloves without taking them off. Next, wipe down your shoes. Pull off your shoes, then gloves before you go into the house. Next, go straight into the laundry room and as you undress, everything needs to go straight in. I have found that using ordinary detergent and hot water cleans everything just fine. Mix lights and darks, who cares, these are just your work clothes, right?Read more ›
