Fels Naptha for Poison Ivy?

How do we use Fels Naptha to effectively treat poison ivy rash? And anything special to do with it to make laundry soap for poison ivy clothes?

I cannot answer your question, but Mary Hunt just had a recipe for soap in a column a few days ago. She is the author of "Cheapskate Monthly". I am sending you the link and I imagine if you ask the question there, she can answer you.

You wet the bar of Fels Napha and then rub it across the poison Ivy. This causes the Poison to dry up. I do not think you would have to wash your clothes in it,you should be able to wash them in what ever you usually use for your laundry.

I got poison on my arms almost 2 weeks ago.

It just seemed to be spreading and spreading.

Then I remembered reading on here about the

Fels Naptha and decided it couldn't hurt to try it.

Well, it has helped tremendously!! and my poison

has started drying up. The skin is a little flakey

around those areas but the rest of it is ok. I

crubbed the areas with the wet bar, then rinsed

well. Last night I was able to remove the coverings

I had on both arms so it didn't get aggrevated by

any accidental touchings on anything. I will definitely

remember this for the future. Normally I would not

have gotten it this badly as I thoroughly wash with

lots of soap and water after being around any

poison, but I was away and didn't do a thorough

enough washing. Just had to share!

Well it has worked for years with us, just take a bar of Fels napha, suds it up and put the lather on the poison ivy and let it dry, after couple of batches it'll dry up and be gone.
