Pennywise Hint: poison ivy remedy

Mix a small amount of vinegar with enough baking soda to make a paste the consistency of peanut butter.
                
Stand in the shower to get wet all over.   Turn off water.  Put paste on wet washcloth and scrub it into your skin all over, scrubbing as hard as possible.
                 
Rinse off paste.  Towel dry and then apply straight vinegar all over your body with a clean washcloth.  Let dry.
 
Poison ivy or oak is similar to a chemical burn.  If you come in contact with it everything you were wearing MUST BE washed.  Most detergents, even dish soap will work but it has to be 'grease cutting.'  Don't forget the bedding if you broke out in the night!!
