Question

Can I apply Tecnu Original before possible contact with poison ivy?

Answer

No, using Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser before exposure to poison ivy will not help prevent the rash. Tecnu Original is a cleanser that is formulated to unlock the urushiol bond with your skin so you have to use afterward to wash off the poison ivy oil.

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