We have an app for that…
Welcome Back Friends,
Let's talk apps, ok? Ever noticed those six little icons
featured on the front of your Tecnu® Original label? You
know, the symbols for Skin, Tools, Clothes, Pets, Skunk, and Sap?
Yep, those! In case you didn't already know, those six little icons
represent the multitude of things Tecnu® can work its magic on
(apps, if you will)! Most avid users have come to know Tecnu's many
uses; although there are still some who are not aware of the
various ways in which Tecnu® can be used. Don't worry, we
completely understand that by the time you drag yourself to the
pharmacy and begin searching for poison oak/ivy help, you may have
missed the meaning behind each of our icons! No problem, I'll
explain them here:
- SKIN - If used within the first
2-8 hours after exposure to urushiol oil from poison oak/ivy/sumac,
Tecnu® can remove the rash-causing oil from your skin. Simply
apply Tecnu® to the affected area, rub in for 2 minutes, and rinse
with cool water. Check out this helpful
video for more details!
- TOOLS - Saturate a cloth in
Tecnu® and wipe down your gardening tools, lawn mower, weed eater,
etc. You can follow up with a cloth saturated in water to remove
any excess product if necessary.
- CLOTHES - Saturate any clothing
that you suspect may have come into contact with urushiol oil in a
bucket before washing in warm/hot water. You can also spot
treat clothing, try attaching a spray top to your bottle and spot
treat areas of known exposure. Last but not least, if you do
not have enough Tecnu to fully saturate your clothing, run clothes
through two cycles in your washing machine in warm/hot water with a
heavy degreasing detergent. We have a helpful
video for this too!
- PETS - To clean your furry loved
one, saturate a cloth in Tecnu® and wipe down their coat. It
is important to follow up with a bath using your regular pet wash
to assure your dog/cat does not ingest any excess product that may
be left on their coat.
- SKUNK - If your pet has been
sprayed by a skunk, follow the same directions listed above for
pets (or watch this helpful
video) to remove the awful stink that Pepè Le Pew left
- SAP - Yes, Tecnu® can also remove
sticky, irritating, tree sap! Wipe down tools, skin, or clothing
that has been sapped, and voila - sap be gone!
That's right, Tecnu is not just your average cleanser! Been
sprayed by a skunk? We've got an app for that. Run into
poison oak or ivy? We've got an app for that too. Found
yourself a sticky mess from tree sap? No worries, we have an app
for that as well. So the next time you find yourself facing one of
the troubles mentioned above, just remember, Tecnu® Original has an
"app" for that!
