View Full Version : Removing Poison Ivy Oils from Treated Wood

Jul. 11, 2010, 02:46 PM
I left my jump standards in a field that recently got invaded by some poison ivy. The legs of the standards and a couple of the poles were touching the poison ivy. Is there any way to remove the poison ivy oil from the jump standards? Right now I am being careful and using gloves if I need to handle them but I'd like it if I didn't have to do that. I was thinking about scrubbing everything with bleach water, but wanted to make sure that will take the oils off. Thanks!

scrub them down with Dawn dishwashing soap. It will remove the oils from a painted jump. If the jump is natural you might have to paint it after scrubbing it as the oils can soak into it.
