Yeah, I googled the hell out of it. I was told by a pharmacist, that a
popular outdoor skin cleaner that goes for $35 for a one-ounce tube is
the exact same thing as red cloud (or clouds??) industrial cleaner,
which goes for about 1/100th the price.
I suggested Dawn because I was acquainted with one of the product managers
when it first was introduced. He said the stuff was not intended to soften
hands or make butterflies float around the kitchen like in the commercials
for competing products. The idea was to create a cleaner that was the
closest thing to the much harsher stuff used in restaurants. I've used it to
get motor oil sludge off of clothing. I'm sure it'll take care of plant

What you want is Tecnu Oak & Ivy cleanser. It's not very expensive, and a little
goes a very long way. Available at most pharmacies. I'm highly allergic and this
stuff is a lifesaver. Tecnu also has related products and creams for skin
inflammation and rashes.
I'm a tree farmer. I've always got a bit of the stuff going on. I like
to keep a supply handy, as I never know when the "itch will hit."
I only treat if it gets in a "delicate spot" or begins to take over a
large area of skin, otherwise copious amount of "as hot as I can stand
it" water deadens itch enough that I can live with it.
I've used TecNu cleaner for years. TecNu has a new product out,
"Extreme" which I hear is the best yet for cleaning the rash, but I
haven't tried it yet. The cost is also supposed to be reasonable.
But, I figured If I could get a five-gallon tin or so of "Red Cloud" or
whatever it is for $10-50, even if it's not as good as some of the
"specialty products" I'd bear it for the $$$ savings. LOL
