I’ll vouch for jewelweed…but there’s also a solvent-soap called TecNu that’s very effective too. The thing is, TecNu smells awful, so you may want to apply it outside. Things NOT to try: my great grandma’s homemade lye soap, straight bleach, or hydrogen peroxide. Just trust me, this is from experience. The middle one I wasn’t dumb enough to try myself, but the guy who did screamed like you wouldn’t believe.

HeliGroupie: I was joking, but thanks for the compliment anyway. Sorry I missed chat last night…I meant to be there, but wound up at the station until bedtime anyway. But the chief is sending me for the big fancy official 3-day vehicle extrication course! I’m really excited. It’s going to be so much fun! Of course, there’s like three other places I’m supposed to be that weekend, but oh well.
