Answer: 
I have used only on wood and concrete but if it is paint you are removing it is worth a try. This is a good product. I don't suggest leaving it over night however, I did this on the concrete and the product dried out and really didn't work well. I found your best results are following the instructions for sit times.

Answer: 
The product can be used overnight and the directions say it is good to use on metal. All the same, I would ask the company's web site.

Answer: 
Cover it with plastic...such as dry-cleaning bags, then use mineral spirits to wet it again if need be.
Finally scrape it off with plastic scraper if on wood, or/and striping pads.

Answer: 
When using the stripper, after scrapping the paint, it is advised to clean off the residue with a paint stripper wash or an odorless mineral spirits.
I used odorless mineral spirits and it was ready to paint in a few hours.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 201 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best stripper ever! Purchased this Citristrip for a roadside find, student desk. I read online reviews of the low odor which was a priority. Bought it at HD along with plastic scrappers. The desk had a medium stain with what appeared to be magic marker colors all over the top. The stripper worked great in 30 minutes. I did go over some areas twice due to my impatience, yet still had about a 5th of the 1/2 gallon left after stripping the entire desk. The product smelled like bubblegum. I did find in the Florida summer heat it tended to dry rather quickly.in my garage. Much to my surprise I found beautiful maple and birch wood underneath all that. Solid wood, stamped 1960, made in the USA, what more can a person ask for! I intended to re stain until I found that beautiful maple under there, so I went back to HD and found Minwax wipe on poly clear coat. It got good reviews online as well, easy to use, wipe on, let dry, that's it. I put two coats on and it gave it a beautiful showroom shine. I just stand back and look at it in awe. See photos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff really works!!! I needed to find a good product to strip the old varnish off my front door. I didn't want to use something real harsh that contained methylene chloride so I initially tried Mossenbacher's water based varnish remover but it just wasn't strong enough. I saw some good reviews online for Citristrip so I thought I would give it a try and was not disappointed. The "before" picture is after multiple attempts with Mossenbacher's. Two coats of Citristrip and all the old varnish was gone! The product smelled great. I only wish I had used it first! I finished up with steel wool, sanding and then used MinWax Helmsman Spar Urethane to finish it off. Very happy with the results. Before and after photos included. February 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money. Returning to store. As described, the product has a citrus smell and is not at all overwhelming even for an indoor application. Product was applied and after 30 minutes, (68 degrees, indoor, out of sun or wind, per product instructions), a plastic scraper was used to strip away what appeared to be 2-3 coats of deep, red paint from wood trim. Performance was inconsistent. In a few areas, the paint scraped away entirely. In most areas, the paint gummed up and smeared, and even mineral spirits were not strong enough to clear the product and the rubbery clumps of paint left behind. Using a wire wheel to remove the residue. Will not attempt to use this product again. May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase! I purchased this product about a month ago. My decision to purchase this product was based on customer reviews. Well, I just got around to using it on my kitchen cabinets...OMG, what an amazing product!!! I brushed a good coating of gel on with a paint brush and let it sit for about an hour and then I used a plastic tool to scrape it off. I tell you no lie the paint came off with no problem. It just lifted off the cabinet drawers and doors so easy that I was more than happy. I have a large project that I'm working on and this is making my job so much easier. The best part is that it does not have a strong smell (hence the citrus scent). Be sure to get yourself a bottle or more for the project in your home you won't be sorry!!! April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked on most layers, eventually. Good stuff for low odor. I used this on a very old floor, many types of varnish because I can't deal with heavy fumes or sawdust. I had bought other 2 types which did not work as well,not even low VOC. The hardest thing about this type of stuff is that it tends to soak in and/or dry too fast. It can keep working once it is gooey but if it crystallizes with the old varnish, it is finished being effective. Cleaning the remaining goop off is the biggest part of the work. The oak floor is 92 years old. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I Love this Stuff After watching numerous YouTube videos and the majority of them woman who were using Citristrip, I decided to give it a try and I love this stuff. I am working on a large entertainment unit 6'Lx3'Wx3D. So rather large for my second DIY project in my life! Now I am ready to stain. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paint remover The best paint remover I have ever used. The odor is a citrus orange odor, it goes on like a paste, it stays moist for 24 hours, and it takes multiple layers of paint off with every application. I highly recommend this product to everyone that needs an excellent paint remover! April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VERY GOOD INDOOR PAINT and VARNISH STRIPPER! This is a very good product for interior wood stripping, although I would recommend adequate ventilation and use of eye, respiratory, and skin protection. I have used it for both light and fairly heavy stripping. For the best results, I have found that it needs to "sit" on the surface for a full 10-20 hours. Also in the heavier-duty application on a stairway bannister in an 80 year old home, after applying the product I wrapped it in plastic (dry-cleaning bags work), letting it sit for about 24 hrs. A good deal of the old finish (probably coats of polyurethane) came off when the plastic was unwrapped. Most of the remaining old finish could be scraped off using plastic scrapers and stripping pads with mineral spirits. Some areas needed two or more applications to get to the bare wood, but a couple of wood finishing professionals were impressed with my DIY results. It IS a lot of work, but the product does its job without harming the wood or making me feel as if I am poisoning my family! P. S. It did not work as well on metal finishes. April 19, 2016
