Hawbaker: Poison ivy the most irritating of all weeds

One weed which I dislike more than any other is poison ivy, because of my past history of suffering from the rash caused by the oil in the plant.

Over the years, I’ve had poison ivy rash on my hands, feet, arms, legs, face and more. Most of the time, the contact with the plant leaves took place in the summer months, but one year in December while digging up vines, oil got on my skin causing the rash.

One Boy Scout Troop burned vines and several of the boys got rash on their face and eyes from the smoke.

  5. I've found it to be much more effective and a lot cheaper than Zanfel but having seen this video, I'm definitely going with a degreaser like Dawn in the future. (And, like this gentleman, I haven't had a major outbreak of poison ivy in 15 years and I'm
