Important Information

Safety Warning
Caution: keep out of reach of children. For external use only. Should not be applied to raw or oozing area of skin. Do not use this product for at least 3 days after using hydrocortisone ointments on the affected area. May irritate sensitive skin. If redness, irritation or itching occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. Keep out of eyes and other mucous membranes.
If in eyes, flush with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor immediately. Bring this product with you.

Ingredients
Deodorized Mineral Spirits, Water, Propylene Glycol, Octylphenoxy-Polythoxethanol, Mixed Fatty Acid Soap and Fragrance.

Directions
For use:
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.

Every summer, I get in contact with poison ivy and then my entire body reacts. I usually end up with one or sometimes two rounds of steroids just to keep my hives under control. Ever since I discovered Technu a few years back, I have managed to keep my reaction to a minimum.

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.

We've used this product for about 8 years. My daughter and husband are extremely sensitive to poison ivy, and this product seems to be the only thing that works to prevent an outbreak or reduce spreading. We keep it handy to use right after exposure (the best time to use it), although it also works well after the rash has started. The product apparently dissolves the oil that causes the rash, so the rash doesn't spread.

I am HIGHLY allergic to poison ivy, oak, and sumac. Many times I have had to go to the doctor after coming into contact because I become so outbroken and swollen. We have neighbors that live behind us that have poison ivy growing in their back yard. For whatever reason they refuse to do anything about it. Any efforts from my side of the fence have been for naught. So now when I find it creeping up under the fence I just pull it. Then I treat with Tecnu. I haven't had any breakouts since I have been using Tecnu. I usually keep 2 bottles on hand to make sure I am not without.

I've been using Tecnu for 10+ years and it's my savior! It allows me to go hiking without worrying about getting poison ivy. I get PI easily from head to toe. Tecnu should be applied to dry skin from head to toe; wait 3 minutes, and rinse with cold water. I even take Tecnu with me when I hike and apply it to exposed skin if I know that I've just gotten into PI. I then wash it off in a creek or with a little water from a canteen. Tecnu seems to be made out of dish soap and ethylene glycol (organic compound used in automotive antifreeze). If you run out of Tecnu try using a lot of dishsoap the same way you'd use Tecnu (no water! rub it on dry). It doesn't work as well but it's better than nothing. Sometimes I've had to apply Tecnu 2-3 times if I've missed a spot or I feel an itch coming on. This keeps the bumps from developing and results in a very very minor itch for 24 hours instead of the normal insanely itchy PI rash.

I've been fortunate enough not to have to use it lately, and I hope the formulation hasn't changed because in the old days when I did lots of chopping through poison ivy, this stuff was a godsend. I did controlled tests, washing one arm after a day of work with Tecnu and the other with regular soap. This really does minimize the PI rash. Great product.

I have been using Tecnu for more than 15 years. It seems to be effective in preventing the outbreak of poison ivy, if it is generously applied and left on for at least two minutes. Tecnu allows me to run the trails and feel relatively confident I will not suffer the consequences of poison ivy.

We have 5 primitive acres withoison ivy vines hundred feet high and 6 or more inch wide vines. Was getting badly seared, especially after washing the dog. Now I rinse with technu and rinse with cold. Rarely get poison ivy.

This product seems to work. It could be all smoke and mirrors but I try to use this if I am ever in a spot where I could have come in contact with poison ivy. Since I have not done any scientific tests on this product I am not sure it is any better than plain soap and water but it gives me a comfort level as I am highly allergic and if I am infected it is straight to the doctor for steroids for me.
