Okay, so I have poison ivy breakout. Madding, yes, I know. So now I am paranoid and scared of getting more. I suspect that my dogs have brought me this wonderful curse. Here is the big question:
If the dogs got a bunch of the oil on them and then touched a bunch of things (sofa, floor, etc.,) then how long will can that oil be in danger of effecting me???? Do I quaranteen 2 households until I can scrub every single inch of them? And how do I clean off fabric couches that can't have bleach on them?
