From Kansas, My job has me work in wooded areas. I layer up and keep my self pretty well protected, Have not got Poison Ivy in quite a while. I was cleaning the house up and ran across some Jeans that I use to wear for work, Lost some weight and do not wear them any more. I last used them a work and they have not been washed for over a year. I just Handled them not thinking about it. I just jumped in the shower for a quick wash.

My Question is, how long does Poison ivy last on clothing if it does come in contact with it and is not washed?

Thank you
