Vodka Tips & Tricks
Pour vodka or rubbing alcohol on skin that has come in contact with poison ivy to reduce itching and remove urushiol oil from skin.
Urushiol oil is found poison oak, poison ivy, poison sumac and (I didn’t know this until recently) mangos! Urushiol oil can cause an allergic reaction of skin rash on contact in those sensitive to its properties. Urushiol can penetrate skin within 10 minutes, so it is important to wash with soap and water in the first minutes of contact.
