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.

Customer Reviews

1 qt. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 300.
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.

The only complaint (and it is from my own downfall) is that it doesn't seem to cut through PRIMER as well as it does multiple layers of paint. So don't be afraid to use two coats. Videos will show to scrub with steel wool for areas that don't come off after 1 coat. If you have quite a bit of areas that don't come off at first, just coat again. It will save a lot of elbow grease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. I used it to remove paint from glass, metal hinges and door hardware. Works quick and i was able to scrape and wipe it away easily. I also used it to remove overspray on a metal container. By reducing the time i let it sit i was able to remove the top layer of overspray and keep original paint on the metal container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to strip a tabletop covered with an inconceivable amount of stain and varnish. I HA... 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 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.
