This product is so bad it removed hardly any of the deck stain. After several applications waiting over 1 hr to work, scrubbing, misting, several more applications, it still would only remove approx 60% of the old stain. The alternative was to use my pressure washer. Now i'm going to sand the surface to even out the marks from the pressure washer.

Answer: 
Hi overworked,
We recommend using the All-In-One Wood Cleaner after you use the stripper. This will neutralize the wood and help with adhesion of the new coating. I'm sorry to hear that the stripper didn't remove any of the old deck stain on your project though. So that we can assist you with this, please contact us by calling 1-800-854-0133, extension 2.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Answer: 
Your best bet would be to sand the top with a machine you can rent at HD called a square buffer/sander. It uses a large pad with a sheet of sandpaper and is pretty easy to use. After sanding the flat areas you will need to do some touch ups with a detail sander.

Answer: 
Hi CJ,
Thanks for checking in! The stripper is designed to take off product where it's applied, so if it comes into contact with the sides, it will most likely deteriorate any existing paint or stain there as well.
Sorry about that! Best of luck with your project.

Stripper vs cleaner

This question is from 1-gal. Wood Stain and Finish Stripper
Asked by
Beaverton, Oregon

June 10, 2016
My strategy for treating my deck has always been: when I notice that water on my small deck is not beading up anymore, I buy the stripper and scrub what's left of the old sealer off by hand, using a stiff brush. After a day or two, I apply the sealer with a brush--two thin coats. My question is--why do I see directions for cleaning and sealing a deck that don't involve a stripper?

1-gal. Wood Stain and Finish Stripper is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your $ I have large Deck with barn red stain!! Ran into Behr guy at Home Depot and he referred me to this product (#64) 5 gallons and over a $100 later my deck dries and I either need to sand it or replace it... ps. I bought a $9 can of citristrip and used it on gate and hard to reach places and not a spot of stain left and it power washed right off. (No scrub brush, scrapper etc.) Should've just bought a case of that

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Didn't Work I applied to the solid stain on my deck, which had started to peel. Kept it wet, used a stiff brush, scraper and pressure washer. After 4 or 5 applications, with waiting periods as long as 45 minutes, at best got maybe 1/4 of the old stain off. And this was after a lot of hard scrubbing. Wasted my time and money and ended up with a mess. I wish I'd read the reviews before buying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money I would have given this product zero stars if I could. The store rep recommended it as very effective but it didn't work as expected. We eventually decided to rent a floor sander to get the job done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stained me deck orange!! I needed something to use to strip stain off my deck. Behr usually has quality products so I thought I'd give this a try. Wow! What a disappointment. I followed instructions to a "T" and it turned my deck orange in some places!! It seems like whenever I put the stripper on the deck, it stained it orange!!! I really hope it isn't stained orange forever! I'm gonna clean the deck with another product/brand to clean all the algae green mold off and I hope it comes off then!! If not I'll be quite upset with Behr especially since I followed instructions!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have read the reviews first! I have two coats of Behr deck stain on my 5 year old deck and decided that I wanted to strip it and start over again. I have a dog whose claws put marks in the finish as he takes off running. So, Behrs deck stain? Why not use Behrs Deck Stripper? Two applications later and two hours of wasted time and a borrowed power washer tell me that I should have read the reviews first. This product is marginally better than water. Save your money!!!!!!!!!!! It might be Premium in their eyes but it is sub-standard in mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY I have a 10x10 and an 18x22 foot wood deck. Instead of winging it, I bought Behr Wood Stain and Finish Stripper at my local store. I read the directions 3 times to make sure I didn't miss anything. I had thoroughly cleaned my decks. I followed the directions specifically and had all the right supplies. HOURS later after scrubbing and then rinsing and rinsing and there were bubbles and bubbles, I stopped using the pressure washer as the instructions had indicated and went with just the garden hose. I was rinsing for hours and my deck doesn't look any different. I will be requesting a FULL REFUND. Now, I am wondering if I waste my time with the Wood Cleaner or should I just return all the containers and quit. DISAPPOINTED. Sure wish I had read the reviews BEFORE starting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT! Just follow the directions! I don't understand how this has gotten so many low reviews. I used it today and it was PERFECT! We needed to remove semi-transparent stain from our cedar deck railings and spindles. Bought this product along with a small 3 inch roller to apply. Before applying I MISTED the deck with water - just lightly misted, not soaked. Shook product very well and poured into a small paint pan. Wearing gloves and working in small sections of the railings, I rolled this product generously onto the deck rails and spindles and let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes after done applying. Then I used a small work broom with stiff bristles to lightly rub the rails and the stain started coming off in a gloppy mess. Using just a hose on "stream" setting, I sprayed off the product along with all the stain. It literally just washed off the wood. Rinsed until water was clear. Other reviewers must not be doing something right, because this was so EASY and IT REALLY WORKED!! The hardest part is just make sure you don't get it on your skin, but if you are careful then that isn't a problem. Will be using the Behr deck cleaner on it tomorrow to make it really clean and will be ready to stain after that. Definitely works - check out before and after photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My husband and I spent the weekend stripping our deck. I don't know what the other reviewers were doing but if you follow the instructions this product works beautifully. We have 300 sf of deck and just as much railing. We worked in sections, applied a thick layer of product to railings using a 2in paint brush, kept product wet (buy/use a pump sprayer it will save your life), let stripper work for 30 mins, scrubbed with deck brush, power washed off, applied Behr deck cleaner with another pump sprayer, waited 15 mins for product to work and power washed off. We followed this same process for the deck boards but applied the product with a 1/2 nap paint roller. The old stain came off easily and the deck boards and rails look very white and clean. I can't wait to stain/seal and have a new deck!
