Rated 5 out of 5 by great product, takes longer on old-baked on oil based paint I've had such tremendous results with this stuff that I now love to redo furniture...only problem I encountered was removing paint from and old exterior door with oil-based paint that had been "baked on" from the sun over years. I was not able to get it all off (but then again I don't tend to be a patient person and probably start scraping too soon). After I got to the point where I was just DONE scraping...I stained over the top, and now have a unique looking shabby sheik door. Just wish I could learn patience....however, I have some BEAUTIFUL completely refinished pieces! Just keep trying and be patient if there's oil based underneath! August 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty Good Stuff! We used this product to strip an outdoor deck with multiple layers of dark red solid color stain on it. It took a few coats, but the product did work and was very environmentally friendly. We have two dogs so I wanted to make sure whatever we used would not be hazardous to them. We tried to use one of the more harsh chemicals that you spray on and it didn't work nearly as good and it smelled terrible. My only complaints about this product are that it takes more than one coat (for our job anyway), it takes a long time to apply (you have to brush it on with a paintbrush), and it's pricey. We needed 6 containers and a power washer. I'm not sure it would have taken the stain off without a power washer. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Very easy to use! Within 30 minutes I was able to scrape the paint right off with hardly any effort. There was no bad odor. For spots the smeared, I applied solution to a paper towel and wiped right off! I will use this again! May 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product It definitely removes old finishes. I used it to take the finish off of some secondhand furniture. Cautionary Note: I am still searching for some gloves that this product will not eat through, so double up, change gloves, and wash your hands frequently. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ugly Melted Away Previous owners thought peaks on enamel paint on the bathroom walls was an attractive finish. Ugh. This product melted away decades of paint right to the drywall without harsh odor so I could use it without ventilating the entire house in the middle of Winter. Easy to use, easy to clean up-follow all manufacturers' directions and it works as promised. March 23, 2013
