This is an interesting idea! Maybe the polish helps keep it from spreading? For sure washing with detergent and keeping it dry is a big help.

I use tecnu right now when I get in some in the yard or first see some coming up. So far this has worked great for me but am glad to see that I can use dawn dish detergent. The tecnu dry your skin out bad but I guess that is how it stops it. I never even get the rash and if it starts it is gone within a couple of hours. Does the dawn clear it up right away or does it still spread? I would love to not use chemicals on my body but I hate poison ivy. The nail polish I can not do but I will try the dawn. Any homemade natural way to stop it?

I wish I would have known about this last summer when I had a bad case of poison ivy!

Totally sending this to my cousin who got poison ivy this weekend!
