High Efficiency (HE) Washers


About 6 months ago the old washing machine gave out. Went shopping for one of those new upright HE Washers. Works great with very little water.

Well...... the vegetation along my driveway needs to be cut back every few years, and this year was one of them. Because I am allergic to poison ivy I where blue jeans, t-shirt, long sleeve shirt, heavy sox and work boots. This usually protects me pretty well. Not this year. Had it on top of the feet, both ankles, and both legs below the knees. Bad enough it required several applications of benydryl (sp) spray.

As best as I can figure, that HE washer uses so little water that it gets out the dirt, but not the oil from the poison ivy plant.

I will not use that washer again to prove my theory, I will use our 2nd hand washer that has been in the basement for years for trapping and gardening clothes. It still uses a whole lot of water.

mike , Liberal amounts of 245 T will take care of the ivy, FOREVER. round up brush killer works good i've been told.

they make a real good pre-exposesure ointment that does work , i'll see if i can find it as i can't remember the name . i don't even have to touch poison ivy,oak, or sumac , if the wind blows my direction and i'm close enough i'll get it and then it cortizone shots and pills to kill it.

Does it just kill the ivy, or is it a vegetation killer.

245 T if you can find it ( banned now ) kills everything . used to mix 1 oz. to 2 gallons of fuel oil , cut a gurdle around a tree , spray in cut , tree would be wilting and dieing within a few hours. any type of tree . i'd bring you some but i used the last my dad had last summer to clean out the back fence on my mom's place , the 3 adjioning land owners behind her would never keep there part cleaned up so i killed everything on both sides of the fence for several feet on each side .

the round up brush killer , not sure just been told it worked , don't think they cared if it killed everything just as long as the ivy was dead. roundup from my use of it is usually pretty specific on what its for .

Tecnu Extreme works great as a post-exposure soap and also clears up the rash quickly if you don't wash in time.

As for control of poison ivy and other woody plants, an herbicide containing triclopyr and 2,4-D (Crossbow from Dow and Loveland Products) works quite well and you can still buy it (Unlike 245T)! 1.3 to 2 oz per gallon of water in a hand/backpack sprayer works well. It can also be used for cut stump, basal bark, and dormant stem applications.

About forgot...as with most 2,4-D formulations, this will not harm grass unless applied to stressed grass (drought, etc.).

Dave, I wouldn't use the term "expert". I ain't an expert at anything!:P
