For years Tecnu has been making products that keep you safe while outdoors, no matter the activity. Tecnu Original, developed during the Cold War to wipe of radioactive dust from skin has evolved into a multi-use product from everything to poison ivy, oak, and sumac treatment to removing pitch from coniferous trees that gets on your gear. It also removes skunk oils from those on their trap lines or the family pet.
As the years go by I am amazed at just how much I discover poisonous plants in the West, especially now that I know what I’m looking for. Poison oak for example, exists in many waterways in the dry, arid landscape here in Wyoming – not the state you’d normally think to look in for this type of plant.
Thankfully Tecnu Original can also be used to remove oils from tools, pets and clothing. Since poisonous plants are more prevalent than what you may think, including Tecnu in your first aid kit is something to seriously consider.
