Remedy for Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Insect Bites and Stings

Instructables offers Remedy for Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Insect Bites and Stings, a quick solution of vinegar, dishwashing soap, and water.

I personally prefer ammonia that has been only lightly watered down, or straight, just dabbed on the mosquito and other insect bites.

Do you have a fast, homemade recipe for dealing with poison plants and insect bites?

    Insect bites, like ant bites, are acidic. Vinegar is also acidic. This idea would work using something alkaline to combat the acid. Try household amonia rather than vinegar.
