I was out grilling on the back patio when I got covered in what looked like soot from the grill. I made a mental note to clean the grill.
The next morning I was covered in a poison ivy rash on my arms and legs where the 'soot' had landed. Turns out my neighbors 1/2 a block away had been burning a big pile of poison ivy. Thanks neighbor!
That was 2 weeks ago and I still have new blisters appearing each day so I am guessing that my patio furniture also got the 'soot' treatment and I am getting more oil on myself every time I sit out there.
Will a good spray with hot water do the trick or do I need to be more drastic?
