Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A product that actually DOES work Used product to remove God knows how many layers of paint from a 50 yr old staircase, Gel based product stays put on vertical surfaces. Product took about 5 hrs to bubble up meaning ready time. Easily scraped off multi layers of old paint with spackle knife. Used old kitchen pan scrub brush with diluted dish soap to scrub off remaining white paint residue, which allowed bare new looking wood to appear September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Takes time and patience but removes Oil-based paint off tile and tub, removes Polyblend GroutRenew too I applied the product to a tiled shower tub combo previously painted with oil-based paint; after 30 minutes, a majority of the covered areas had bubbled and the paint was easy to remove with a plastic putty knife. There were some areas that didn't bubble and were a little harder to remove with putty knife, so I just used either the Workforce Single Edge Blade Window Scraper or Mini Scraper to remove them. I also found that it removes Polyblend GroutRenew as well; whereas the darker colors like Delorean Gray required as least two coatings to remove completely, the lighter colors like Bright White required only one coat. The smell of the product was much more pleasant than conventional strippers; however, it's still a strong citrus scent and I recommend keeping the area well-ventilated when using the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your time with anything else. After trying 2 other paint stripping products that were complete failures even after 48 hours wrapped in damp towels, I was about to give up. Thank goodness I listened to the store associate who convinced me to give this product a shot. I am in awe. Multiple layers of 30 plus year old paint on wrought iron patio furniture simply bubbles up and wipes away with CitrusStrip. A bonus...It smells fantastic! No more dizzy headaches! May 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great! No smell! I decided to refinish my kitchen cabinets. They have 40 years of shellac/varathane on them. I've only just started, but the results are astonishing. Granted, it will take longer than with the "old school" toxic strippers, but it will be well worth it. October 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works great.. My wife and I poured a little onto a painted cabinet door that was sitting on a workbench, than after it bubbled up, the paint came right off easily with a paint scraper or putty knife.. We changed our kitchen cabinets from white paint to natural wood a little at a time.. The entire job was under $250.00 including the stripper, sand paper, poly urethane, new screws for the hinges, and a belt sander.. A contractor wanted over $12,000 for the same job...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's good to be safe stripping gel My wife has serious allergies to paint products with strong fumes and she was able to use this stripper with nor problems. It's very safe and doesn't expose you to harmful fumes. It strips paint good too! November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very effective...and safe Have used this product several times now to remove old paint or varnish from antiques. It is gentle enough not to harm or deface the wood beneath, as a stripper, it is "controllable" and there is no odor. I highly recommend it. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Citristrip stripping gel So easy to use, no strong smell! Actually worked better than anticipated September 22, 2015
