This is kind of like a public service announcement. And it started when my brother called from California to ask my advice about treating his poison ivy. And that led to remembering what my mother always said about this-"wash with Fels Naptha soap". And this was reinforced by what my nursing co-workers told me last year when I had it-" you have to wash it with an old fashioned but hard to find soap". So I repeated all that to my brother who reported back that he couldn't find this soap in his area of California and,in his opinion, it was probably because it killed a fruit fly and has been banned. Well after I stopped laughing, I went out and bought 2 bars-one to send to him and one to keep on hand. Because when you have poison ivy, the last thing you want to do is to go out hunting this soap down. So-if you see it, do yourself a favor and buy one for your medicine chest! The Milk Bones
aren't for me.
