Works for me😃. Seems oil in ivy is oil soluble. Vegetable oil combines to dilute then all is washed away with a good soap; Dawn being a good one.

Yessir. Costs a small fortune but it really works if you have it in a bad way. A small tube does last a long time. I get it from my dogs a few times each summer. Oil gets on their coats then it transfers to me. Zanfel gives immediate relief after you develop a rash.

I never had any problems as a kid but sometime around 40 or so it started nailing me.

I’ve used everything including unleaded gas. Technu is the best stuff I’ve found. YMMV

I have a cousin and neighbor who can eat it right off the tree and not get it sick

Plus 1.

The level of reaction to poison ivy is different for everyone but with enough exposure nearly everyone will have an allergic reaction. I have a lot of allergies and break out in nasty welts from poison ivy. The best thing to do for poison ivy if you have it and a bad reaction to it is to go get a steroid for it. Within a few hours you start feeling better and are significantly better within a day or two.

As per the OP, any detergent thats good with oils.
Kerosene, WD-40....do the same, acting as solvents.

If you don't know Jewelweed, it's Touch-Me-Nots.
They started growing around our deck, I let them go.
Kinda like 'em.
Plus, it's nice to have a poison Ivy treatment that's there all season,
handy, natural, and free.

The Poison Ivy Soap Company bar soap from Amazon has worked good for me. I’ll use it in the shower soon after being exposed and it seems to work. Been using it for years and each bar lasts a long time.

I carry Costco kirkland baby wipes in my trucks, and when I'm hunting. If I brush against any I just wipe it off. Some people overthink this.

Makes sense kinda... I have used WD-40, paint thinner, diesel (or whatever was handy) with success in the past.

She prefers not to smell like diesel... silly girl.

I can't believe you country PhU KS cant figure out how to get rid of poison ivy / oak.

Tecnu from wal mart and rubbing alcohol. scrub your aZZ with tecnu then pour rubbing alcohol all over. JFHC

if you don't use that method then you deserve what you get.

Country folks don't have to buy fancy "Poison Ivy Soap".
We do just fine with homemade lye soap or Fels Map the.
Just like we did long before your fancy crap was around.

Your skin would mummify if you bathed in alcohol daily.
