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 267.

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.

Excellent product for stripping old varnish and stain from the old hutch that was from the family farm.

I wanted to strip and re-stain my kitchen table and chairs, so I bought this because I wasn't able to do this project outside and I knew that this product didn't have a high odor like some other strippers. You have to layer it on thick and let it sit for a long time before it starts to pull up the top layers of stain. It worked okay for my table top, but required a lot of scrubbing and scraping to get it off. I wasn't able to get any stain off of the chair legs with this product and had to use a different industrial stripper to finish the job. If you have a simple job to do, this product works, but go for a heavier stripper if you have intricate things to strip, like chairs or table legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for stripping wood furniture I bought this because I watched a lot of diy'ers using it to up cycle their furniture. I never stripped any paint because of all of the warning labels on the back of the bottles about being hazardous to your health and was a little intimidated. This product smells very good and works amazing! A little goes a long way. It can get very sticky. I used a medal scraper to scrape of old varnish and mineral spirits to wipe the scraper down. I also used mineral spirits and a steel wool pad to scrub down the table when I was finished stripping it.

You need to give it as least 30 min Only downside I spilled paint on my laminate and this product left a white residue almost as if it spread the paint out vs soaking it up/cleaning it off the floor - But, another pass with regular all purpose cleaner and the residue was gone, paint and all. I also used this on my entry way door - For these largest applications be very liberal with the paint, it bubbled up the old door paint and came off very easily.
