    Would this also calm other rashes like eczema or heat rash?

    Eczema I don't know, but for heat rash you would be much better off using Baking soda or finely-ground oatmeal. Add several tablespoons of either to a lukewarm/cool bath as well as stirring well so that it liquefies completely. Then soak in the water.

    I expect this would be very soothing, but I live in a HARD water area, and would never knowingly use SOAP in anything.. I was wondering, since the main idea to get rid of the poison ivy is to get rid of the oils on the skin, wouldn't a really mild, good detergent like Dawn (they use it on the baby ducks to clean them after oil spills,) work just as well ? You could add the other ingredients if you wanted to, but the main thing is to get rid of the damaging oils from the plants.
