My husband and I were in heavy poison ivy this weekend while installing a new fence. I left all our clothes and gloves in a pile, but now I have to wash them. How long does the oil last on clothes (jeans, cotton long-sleeve Ts.) I'm wondering about transfer long after the initial exposure. At some point, doesn't it soak in and disappear? And can I wash them in regular Tide? Any advice?
