Question

Should I take a shower or a bath with Tecnu Original after exposure to poison oak or ivy?

Answer

It is best to use Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser in the shower. Tecnu Original bonds with the urushiol to remove it from the skin, and in the shower, the urushiol will wash down the drain with the water. In a bathtub however, the oil can disperse into the water and possibly spread to other areas of your body.

Use Tecnu to remove poison ivy and oak oil from skin, pets, tools and equipment
