Yes, it will emulsify the old finish and allow it to be washed away. Use the All-In-One wood cleaner to neutralize as a second step for best preparation for next finish.
Be sure to wear safety glasses and gloves are a minimum!!

Answer: 
Yes. It worked for me. You will need to pressure wash after the product had time to soften the finish. It still requires some effort. Took me 4 hours to do a 16x16 foot deck. don't expect to wash the stain off with a garden hose, pressure washer and time will do the trick.

Answer: 
this product is for removing stain. The directions for this product do not state that it removes paint. I would purchase a product that specifically states that it strips paint. When you strip paint, the paint will 'bubbly up' and lift and you will need to scrap it off with a paint scraper, this product does not do that.

Answer: 
You will be using tons of water to wash this off. Once you dilute it with water it wont damage the vegetation. I sprayed it directly on some shrubs and they are okay. This stripper is a powerful alkaline, the follow up cleaner is acid. Once you use both they balance each other out.

It is highly recommended and much less costly. The All-in-one wood cleaner gets dilluted with water 1:1 and cost about half what the stripper does.
The wood finish if visibly better after neutralizing.

No. Just rinse the wood thoroughly. Use a pressure washer if you can. Even a small electric one is better than the garden hose.
I know they want you to follow up with the cleaner.whitener product they sell. I tried it with and without the whitener and could not see a difference.

Answer: 
If you are referring to having to mix it, or neutralizing it as you say, no you don't have to do anything to it other than apply it directly over the decking.
Make sure it is rinsed completely off all surfaces where it was applied, so your sealer/stain can go successfully over the just cleaned decking.

Answer: 
Dear pjm,
From a technical stand point, thoroughly washing the peppers will ensure any residue from the stripper or stain is removed and the peppers are safe to consume.
If any of the peppers appear to be damaged (discolored or burned by the corrosive stripper) disposal is recommended.
Thank you for your inquiry.

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by As bad as it seems Trying to remove a worn tinted barn red stain from a structurally intact deck. Followed the directions, 3 applications later and you can see the lack of removal in the pic. Used a stiff bristle brush and a power washer to try and remove the stain. Nada. I doubt this stuff can remove water color paint. April 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well on 1 coat of latex I thought it was going to be just like I saw on Youtube. The smiling guy on Youtube just applied it with a roller, let it sit 15 minutes, hosed it off with a garden hose, applied deck brightener, and voila, he had a new looking deck! Boy was I wrong. I started this project last week, a 12 x 12 deck, and it is taking me forever to finish because I thought this product would help, but I might have been just better off scraping, peeling and sanding it all which is what I had to do anyway. Im a rookie at this type of project, so I watched as many Youtube videos as I could and then went and bought a gallon of this product, a gallon of their wood brightener, and orbital palm sander, some paint rollers and a brush. I applied a little and it didn’t look as thick as it did on youtube, so I shook it some more and then it looked thicker. I had to shake it a lot to get it to thicken up. I then rolled it on with a paint roller, and waited 25 minutes. It was still wet when I tried to remove it with the pressure washer, and it did start to remove the latex paint that was on my deck, but much to my surprise, there was another coat of latex paint under the top coat. The second coat wouldn’t come off, even when I pressure washed it, so I waited 2 days for it to dry, then applied another coat of stripper. (one coat cost me $20 for a gallon, so now Im up to $40). Waited 15 minutes, then pressure washed it off. Now before my eyes I see a third coat of paint. I guess I would recommend that people make sure they are only removing 1 coat of stain or paint, otherwise you will be repeating this process a few times like I had to . Finally, after the 3rd application of stripper, the base coat came off, but the wood is around 15 years old, and I let it go for 3 years without maintaining it so some of the base coat just sunk into the wood and wouldn’t let go no matter what I tried. I think its an oil based paint. The wood isn’t in horrible shape, but I guess trying to completely remove paint from old wood is not possible. I decided to sand the whole deck with my palm sander, and after 3 afternoons, I did it 3 times. First with 40 grit pads, then 60 then 80. I expected to see a beautiful deck, and some of it did come back to look good, but a lot of it still had a lot of base white paint in the wood. This is after 3 coats of stripper, and 3 rounds of sanding. The lesson I am learning is that sometimes no matter how hard you try, its just not going to look the way a new deck would. I started to paint it, and the places that I was able to completely strip and sand look ok. The places that the paint just wouldnt come off look pretty bad because they didn’t blend well, but now I know that letting your deck go too long without painting or staining will decrease your decks lifespan and appearance. My suggestions if you want to use this product: Shake it very well so that it’s a thick paste Use it only on wood that’s less than 3 years old or in very good shape. If paint or stain has deeply permeated your aged wood, this wont help because it wont get into the deeper cracks. Reapply if you have multiple coats of paint or stain Youre going to have to sand if you have older wood, this wont remove everything A pressure washer definitely helped me strip the latex off, I cant see just using a garden hose. It took me 5 times as long to do because of the other coats I had to remove, and my old wood. If my wood was in better shape, it might have taken me much less time and looked a lot better. The pictures are after the first 3 coats of stripper, and the second picture is after 3 rounds of sanding. April 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by After hours of work...i just ended up with more work to clean this thing off Have a latex stain on the deck to be stripped...store associate highly recommended this product and i regret for taking it. After hours spent reapplying and keeping it moist in despair that it would "do something" as far as stain removal, but instead it just ended up with a white heavy film on the deck and not even a bit of stain removed. The stain was intact completely. Had to pressure-wash this white film off. Very disappointed especially because i had some other product picked up and after talking with associate he literally showed this thing into my hands. Im taking this back to store for refund and never to look at this product again. May 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did nothing I used this on my painted deck. It did not even soften up the top coat of paint. Pressure washing did not help. It seemed to dissolve the paint below the top coat (to my surprise there were 3 coats) but just couldn't do anything to the top coat. May 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of Money This product is terrible! I put plastic down on my grass just as the directions said and I applied the product as stated. I let it sit without letting it dry then sprayed it off while also using a scrub brush. It only removed about 1/8 of the area I applied it to. Now I have a big ugly mess. I would not recommend this product if someone paid me to do it. May 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didnt work at all My deck was peeling slightly after 2 years, with Sherwin williams solid colored deck stain. I applied this generously . used 1 gallon on a 12X12 octagon deck. its was about 50 degrees out and overcast. i kept it wet by rebrushing and misting with water. It didnt remove any stain, but it did look cleaner and lighter in color. I applied it again, even more generously, using nearly 2 gallons on the same area. let it sit for 45 minutes, then scrubbed and scrubbed, didnt get any of the old stain off. some old stain would come off with scraping with a putty knife, but if i wanted to do that, i would have just sanded. Neutralized with the No. 63 deck cleaner, but there was still a white residue left. it takes a LOT of rinsing to remove the stripper. it just makes a huge mess. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well depending on the type of finish you're trying to remove The product works great if you're trying to remove a water proofing product like Thompson's. Let the Behr product set for the recommended period of time, keeping it wet as instructed. Use a stiff bristle brush to remove the old stain. Then wash it down-no pressure washing should be required. HOWEVER..... If you're trying to remove a stain with color, the job does require letting the product set for a longer period of time, keeping it wet, then using the same procedure (with the brush) as described above with the assistance of a pressure washer. So, depending on your existing surface-whether it's an inexpensive coat of Thompson's that you're trying to remove, or Behr's opaque finishes, remember the darker the color and opaqueness the tougher it is to remove. April 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great when used as directed Me and my wife used this product on our deck and it worked great. You must use it as directed shake it well and use liberal amounts,let it set for 15 to 45 minute's and keep it moist (use a pump sprayer and just mist it to keep it wet ) power wash it off May 1, 2016
