Tecnu It was 1961 when the trusted name in poison ivy was accidentally born. From there, big dreams were made in a small garage. Learn more at: www.teclabs.com
The Tecnu Story - Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac and Nuclear Fallout Tecnu was originally developed in 1961 during the cold war by chemical engineer, Dr. Robert Smith, as an effective waterless cleanser capable of removing radioactive dust from the skin and clothing. His wife accidentally discovered that Tecnu would cleanse poison plant oils after exposure to poison oak and ivy. Tecnu has become standard-issue in first aid kits of outdoor professionals across the country. Now, you can put Tecnu to work for your family. Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser is unique in that it not only removes urushiol, the toxin from poison ivy, oak and sumac plants, from your skin but can also remove urushiol from tools, clothing, equipment and your pets fur to avoid secondary contamination. Tecnu is an effective cleanser for tree sap, pitch, and can remove skunk oil too. For more information on how to use Tecnu, see our post on our corp site.http://www.teclabsinc.com/tips-info/guides-how-tos/how-to-use-tecnu-original-outdoor-skin-cleanser-on-pets,-clothing,-tools,-equipment-and-more Tec Labs has since extended the Tecnu line to include Tecnu Extreme Medicated Poison Ivy Scrub and Tecnu Rash Relief Spray. Tecnu Extreme is the first medicated poison ivy scrub that removes urushiol from your skin and also treats the painful itchy rash in one step! The exfoliating cleanser offers relief in 15 seconds and is a homeopathic formula. Tecnu Rash Relief is also a homeopathic formula that treats the itchy rash with a no-touch spray on application. All Tecnu products are available at drug and grocery stores in the United States. For more information on our products, visit http://www.teclabsinc.com/

It all began with our original product, Tecnu® Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser, developed by chemical engineer Dr. Robert Smith (Doc) as a waterless way to remove nuclear fall-out during the Cold War in 1961. It wasn’t until the following year, and after several bouts of poison oak rash, that his wife Evelyn stumbled upon an interesting discovery! Sick of her children breaking out in the painful rash, Evelyn took to the backyard to remove the poison oak plants that plagued her children with her bare hands. Upon her return indoors, she grabbed the near-by Tecnu and washed up. To her surprise, she never broke out! At first, Doc was skeptical and it wasn’t until many of the Smith’s neighbors had tried Tecnu to remove poison oak resin (urushiol) successfully that they knew they had something special on their hands. Over the years, Tecnu has expanded its offerings! Have the outdoors left you feeling itchy? Whether it's poison ivy, poison oak, or biting insects that trouble you, we have a remedy just for you!

A Backpacker's Guide to Personal Hygiene While Camping

When someone starts to consider backpacking, personal hygiene always seems to be a concern. This is a good guide for a backpacker's personal hygiene. http://bit.ly/2w7Djkt

Backpacking is not synonymous with efficiency and minimalism—but it’s pretty close. That same utilitarianism applies to hygiene as well. So what DO you need to stay clean on the trail?
