Customer Questions & Answers

why does HD indicated "safe to use indoors" when SDS says "Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area"

SDS indicates a lot of personal protection equipment needed & use only outdoors. why the difference btwn Home Depot product details & SDS? Is Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel safe for use indoors or not?
Asked by: PoulsboDave
It appears that you have answered your own question. If it reads "Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area". OR IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA indicates an exception to outdoors so by default it would be an indoors area.

1 qt. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 240.

I bought this to strip a tabletop covered with an inconceivable amount of stain and varnish. I HATE stripping paint & stain so I sanded a section to the bare wood but it took hours for a small section so I decided to try Citristrip. Since the directions on the container are extremely vague, I guessed at how much I needed to apply and went with a thin strip. I waited 20 minutes (as some suggested in the reviews) and not much of anything came off. Disappointed, I tried again but this time I slathered the wood with a thick coating of Citristrip. I waited 2 hours and that did the trick. All those layers of varnish came off quite easily (although with a huge mess). The varnish came off but the dark stain remains so I'm still sanding, but it's taking a fraction of the time it would have without the Citristrip. I prefer this over other products I used in the past simply because the smell is tolerable.

I had to move a large cabinet strip and refinish job to an indoor location because of cold weather. The heavy chemical stripper I was using needed 65 + degrees to activate, So I tried Citristrip so I would not die of toxic fumes, I was very pleasantly surprised how well the product worked despite it's being a super safe product. I believe the strong chemical stripper would have stripped everything in a single pass, and the Citristrip required a second application in a few spots, but I would trade that effort for a safe indoor use product any day of the week. I also love the fact that I can wash up my brushes and tools in the kitchen sink and don't need a hazmat team to dispose of any excess. This is my new paint and varnish stripper from now on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well without the usual goopy mess I used this product to strip a door that had been previously stained and varnished, then painted. This stripper worked well. The paint lifted off easily and a second application removed the varnish and stain. What was most noticeable was that this product did not result in the goopy mess that has occurred with every other paint stripper thatI have used. The old paint lifted in kind of a rubbery consistency. This is a huge advantage. I will be using this for any paint stripping projects that I undertake in the future.

I used this paint stripper on a bow window base that my dogs have destroyed . The product worked great ,you do have to use a liberal amount of this product and let it set for a while like the directions say. this product is very low odor , but the wash that they recommended very volatile and high odor not good for in door use. Over all the stripper was great. Budman

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Citristrip Didn't work as well as another stripper I used; I forget the brand. The positives for this product include low odor, low irritation.The fact that I failed to follow the usage instructions precisely as they were given may have something to do with it not working as well as I expected. It got the job done though and it's always a crapshoot with any product being sold in today's markets.

No burning drips, terrible smells, or toxic fumes. The product takes a little longer to work, but the results were more consistent and the paint layers scraped off clean using a plastic scraper. I would totally recommend this product - it works great to remove furniture varnish and paint.

I'd recommend this product to strip varnish, polyurethane and latex paint, but NOT lacquer (even though the label says it works on lacquer). I tried this on an old guitar body - most likely nitrocellulose lacquer - and it didn't touch it. I even tried letting it sit for 2 days. Nada. So I'm gonna have to use the nasty stuff.

It out performed the old fashion stripper, plus I used it in the garage this past winter without having to open up the doors or windows. Excellent product for stripping old varnish and stain from the old hutch that was from the family farm.
