    use a natural home made spray use a gallon of water and one cup salt with a table spoon of dish soap, shake the water well and spray it all over the poison ivy.

    Hope it helps! Bushra -

    Sorry to say this, but I use a new version of round up. I cut the tops off of the poison ivy and hand paint on the stems, the herbicide.

    The important thing to remember about poison ivy, is that the juice of the plant, on your cutting shears,your gloves and even shovels from the roots, must be wiped off cleaned off with soapy cleanser.

    That juice, will still be active, as poison ivy causing, a year later.

  • My girlfriend and I just did this. We do it the old fashioned way, but it works! We suit up go out and dig it all out. Mark the bags for the refuse service so they don't get a rash. Then drown the area in agricultural strength vinegar. Then immediately get out of our clothes, take a shower and wash our work clothes.
