Warding off poison ivy

My husband is a whitewater rafter. He goes out year round into wild places and often comes into contact with poison ivy. It used to be a real problem for him until someone told us about Fels-naptha soap. It's a laundry soap that comes in a yellow bar. I wouldn't recommend using it all the time, however since he started using it in the shower after coming into contact with poison ivy and putting it in with infected laundry, he hasn't had an outbreak in years. It's a Godsend. So for anyone that faces the dread poison ivy this one really works. What do you guys use?
