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.
