Product Details

Life is too busy to sacrifice your outdoor experience to annoying irritants like poison oak and ivy, pitch, tar, and various other oily substances. Tecnu Detox Wipes are your NEW trusty trail companion to keep these substances at bay so you can live your life outdoors, uninterrupted!

Product Description

From the Tecnu line of products you know and love, comes our NEW, waterless Tecnu Detox Wipes. Our poison ivy wipes made of rayon derived from bamboo fiber, remove poison ivy and oak oil, pitch, tar, and other oily substances from your skin, equipment, tools, pets, and more.

Remember, the sooner you remove urushiol (rash-causing resin from poison ivy, oak, and sumac), from your skin with a poison ivy wipe, the better chance you’ll have of avoiding a poison ivy rash.

Individually wrapped and no water required, Detox Wipes can easily travel with you from your backyard to your favorite trail and beyond! Work or play, you can always count on Tecnu to keep you protected so you can stress less, and Outdoor More.

Did you know: The moniker, Tecnu (sometimes mistakenly spelled ‘technu’) was given by its inventor, Dr. Robert Smith, and means “technically new”?



Causes extreme eye irritation. Avoid contact in or around eyes. In case of contact, flush immediately with water. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue flushing. If irritation persists, contact a physician.

For external use only.

Do not use on raw or oozing skin.

Directions for use:

When exposed to poison ivy, oak, or sumac: Apply wipe to exposed dry skin as soon as possible after exposure to poisonous plants. Rub for 15 seconds. Allow to air dry or towel dry.

To Clean:

Like Tecnu Original cleanser, Detox Wipes remove the oil that causes the rash. The difference is that the wipes are more portable and convenient to use when away from home.

Like Original Tecnu, the Detox Wipes remove poison plant oil (urushiol) from the skin and other surfaces, but the formula in Detox Wipes is not the same. It contains an ingredient extracted from orange oil that allows it to remove the rash-causing oil.

Detox Wipes are safe for children 2 years and older.

Detox Wipes are used to cleanse and remove the oil, but they will not act as a protective barrier. Using it before encountering poison ivy/oak will not protect you from getting the rash.

Pregnancy can cause unpredictable allergy responses, so it is always best to consult with your physician first.

If you choose to use it on your furniture, try it first in an inconspicuous area to test for color fastness.

No, the product is a special cleanser, so it does not have an expiration date. However, we suggest replacing product more than 3 years old, or if the wipes have dried out.

Detox Wipes will remove any urushiol that is in contact with the wipes. However, as an extra measure, it is OK to bathe when you return home as a precaution in case you may have missed an area with the wipes or you have come in contact through secondary contamination (example; if the poison plant oil is on your shoes, and it comes into contact with your hands when removing your shoes).

You can use them as often as you like to remove the oil that causes poison ivy/oak rash.

Yes, you can use it to remove any plant oil that has not bonded to the skin yet. Be careful not to use on broken skin as it could cause irritation. This is not an anti-itch product and will not relieve rash symptoms such as itching and pain.

The material is biodegradable. But, as a best practice, and as a partner of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics encourages, you should pack out the wipe and dispose of it in a proper garbage receptacle.

    These wipes are the best thing ever. I live in Oregon and my dog likes to go camping with us in the summer, but I inevitably get poison oak from her when she comes back to camp. These wipes save us both a lot of pain. Thank you for this awesome and convenient product.

    These Tecnu wipes are a great addition to the line!! After using Tecnu Original Cleanser for years I was glad to find something to use on my boots after being in areas where I I knew there was a lot of poison ivy. I always worried about the oils transferring from boots to hands to everywhere else!! They are also good if there's no place to rinse cleanser off after exposure. Thank you Tecnu for great products and great customer service too!!
