SKIN: Use within a few hours of
exposure to help remove poison oak and ivy oil (urushiol) before
rash begins. Once the rash has started, wash with Tecnu to help
remove oils on skin allowing the healing process to begin without
TOOLS: Urushiol oils clinging to tools and
equipment can cause rash. Clean equipment with a cloth saturated
with Tecnu (check an inconspicuous corner of the equipment for
possible surface damage before use). Wash thoroughly with soap and
CLOTHING: Saturate contaminated,
unwetted clothing with Tecnu in a bucket or dishpan (First check
for color fastness by testing a concealed corner of the fabric).
Let soak for several minutes. Launder clothing by itself as usual
with detergent and hot water.
PETS: Dogs, cats, horses and other furry pets
can become contaminated by urushiol oil and can transfer poison oil
to owners without being affected themselves. Saturate a cloth with
Tecnu and wipe down the pet's coat. Then follow with a pet shampoo
and water bath.
SKUNK: If your pet is sprayed by a skunk,
saturate a cloth with Tecnu and wipe down the pet's coat. Then
follow with a pet shampoo and warm water rinse.
DO NOT LEAVE TECNU ON FUR. IT MUST BE COMPLETELY WASHED OFF WITH
SHAMPOO AND WATER
TREE SAP/PITCH: Tecnu can be used to clean
pitch, tree sap, road tar, grass stains and many other difficult to
remove nuisances from skin, clothing and tools. Apply Tecnu
directly and rub until the stain dissolves. Rinse off with soap and
