Answer: 
Can't say it removes the stain. It did remove the finish top coat. Mine did not have multiple layers, so I am not much help.
I had a more enjoyable experience using this product than sanding.
Experiment with wait times.

Answer: 
I used this to restore a 30's cedar hope chest that 2 layers of paint over the original stain. Citristrip took 2-3 applications in most areas to get down to the wood, and worked on par with other popular products I tried on the piece. Hope this helps!

I like it and on forums, many people like it. Now-a-days I would rather use it than sanding.
Guess it depends on what you are stripping.

Answer: 
Bumblebee here! Since i didn't have patience to wait for an answer i tried product on chalk paint. Yes it does remove chalk paint. It also removed majority of original stain but I didn't mind since I would rather restain and see the character and craftsmanship of the original wood than see paint on a beautiful piece of antique furniture. NO fan here for painted antique furniture!

Answer: 
It removes the finish on top of the stained wood. You can still see stain. If you want to remove the stain you may have to search bleaching methods or sand it out or buy the new stainable primer.
Or, if on cabinets, get Rust Oleum Cabinet Transformations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 143 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orange Citrus Stripper works great! I have used this product several times. It works very well. It does not have a bad odor and cleans up easily with soap and water. April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by welcome relief from the paint smell I had to strip my tub of an unfortunate attempt to use a tub epoxy paint that didn't work. The epoxy was so toxic-smelling that the Citristrip was a relief to work with. I used a recommendation from a YouTube video by someone doing exactly what I was and rushed out to get Citristrip. No need for a mask! What a relief. It wasn't quite as miraculous as I hoped--I still had to put some serious muscle into scraping with a razor and that was after leaving Citristrip on overnight--but it did work. I got nearly every speck of paint off so I could start all over. Someone commented that you shouldn't let it sit TOO long, and that thought kept going through my head as I was scraping. Maybe there's a sweet spot of 4-5 hours, depending what kind of paint, and I would never use it for varnish to avoid the gumminess, but for paint, it's the way to go. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great! This stuff works good and fast! Used on some laquer that had been put on over5 years ago. Starting stripping in about 30 minutest. Great stuff! July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bath tup stripping I have an old bath tub that someone had done a poor job at painting it with special tub paint. After a few years it was wearing off and flaking but about half remained. I was hesitant to try to strip off the old paint till my son in law said try citristrip. I bought it and set out to do a test spot. By the time i finished brushing on a small amount it started bubbling up so i continued and brushed it on the whole tub. I went back to it about two hours later and with a plastic scraper was able to easily strip off all the old paint. Amazing! Great product! June 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works great Let it sit longer than you think you need too when stripping stain and then it just wipes right off. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product - No fumes. I chose this product because of its suitability to be used indoors with no fumes and was not disappointed. I used it to strip the stain from my kitchen table and it worked well. The instructions say it can be left on for up to 24 hours, but I found it dried after about 1 hour and was harder to take off. I brushed it on thickly and took it off after 45 minutes. It didn't smell bad at all, it actually had a pleasant odor. I treated a few stubborn spots a second time with great results. I would recommend this product. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product product is easy to use and cleans up well. no harmful smell. June 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it says I used the Citristrip for a kitchen table, allowed it to sit for 30-45 mins and the paint came right off. June 28, 2016
