will it work on stain wood?

Asked by: Gizzmo
I use it on a daily basis for stained wood of all variety with no issues. Do not over apply because it can soften your wood (First test a small hidden area). I found it best to let Citristrip work around 20 minutes. To remove stained layers use a striping blade for large areas. Next use a course stripping pad then a medium stripping pad. For the hard to reach/rounded areas i use a stripping pad. Immediately wash with an after stripping wash or mineral spirits (this is the most important step because left residue can ruin your project). Finally sand starting with a medium 220 grit and working your way up to a 600 grit or higher.

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

I expected this to really lift the paint from my metal door, and while I was able to remove the paint,it took more time and effort than I expected. I used it on the inside of my kitchen door, and the citrus scent hung around for a day even after I wiped it off. Definitely wear gloves. I didn't have gloves on for the entire job, and now the skin on my hand is peeling; not painful, but could have been avoided.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works Works very well without those nasty fumes. Still need gloves and glasses, but much more pleasant to use than traditional stripper. The gel clings and will soak down to other layers of paint. The instructions say it can be left on up to 24 hours. My experience was that 24 hours was too long. I found the optimum time to be around 2 to 3 hours. I will definitely use this again.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for stripping hard wood floors to natural beauty. We didn't have to put another coating down after using this product. Use of plastic scrapper to smoothly pick up built up wax. We found out that spreading this product, on the floor, letting it sit for about 30 minutes, with the plastic scrapper over wood floor works better than a brush or a brush roller! This product ate up my roller and using a brush was a slower process. Follow directions and use chemical gloves from the very beginning because the skin on my hands dried, flaked and start peeling before I use the correct gloves. Even those gloves had to be replaced too while doing my floors. We learned to used Klen Strip After wash (paint stripper with soft cloths) as I went to remove any extra film left behind that the scrapper couldn't pick up. This way, you get a clean shine and less going back to clean up film because there will be some. This After Wash made using this product excellent! I am overall very pleased with this product

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.
