Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good deep result but not very easy to clean I tried this product on one door of the kitchen cabinet. I was positively surprised to see the result: even if there still is an orange shade, it did remove the gloss and the stain. I let it work for about 1 hours. The only reason why I give 4 stars is because it was not very easy for me to clean it September 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Citristrip Safer- aerosol paint stripper Used it to remove latex paint on windows that had been completely covered with paint. Wasn't sure how well it would stick to a vertical surface other stuff I've tried was too runny, but it stuck and stayed really well. Made sure I shook it up good first and didn't get over zealous with the application. Left it on for 30 min and it took the paint off with a paint scraper quite easily in one application, it left some caulky residue that was easily removed with mineral spirits and a rag. It took almost an entire can to do two 1'x4' areas, will get more and finish now that I know it works well for the job I'm doing. November 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work as expected I used this on lacquer finished pine wood dresser top. I sprayed it on thick and left it on for over 24 hours. I then came to remove the paint with a scraping tool but found I was only able to remove the paint in a few places. It barely had an effect on most of the surface. November 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Would use it again! I used this to remove paint from my bathroom tile which had been painted by the previous owners. It worked much faster than another gel product I used and the orange scent wasn't bad. I didn't give it five stars because after spraying the whole can on one wall, I had to take a break even though my bathroom was ventilated because the fumes were getting to be too much. I was able to clean off the orange residue that was left on the tiles, but I did have to scrub hard with a towel and odorless mineral spirits. In retrospect, I probably should have just bought the large container of the paste but I ended up using two cans. People sensitive to fumes should use a respirator in small spaces. I would use it again. April 8, 2011

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shocked by Great Results I have never had a product that seemed too good to be true that worked. THIS WORKED!. I used it on metal trim rings for our outside down lights. We have put at least 6 coats of paint on them while we lived here. Who knows how many more coats were put on by the previous owners. ALL of the paint, even the original paint from the mfg, wiped right off. We had 2 (out of 12) trim rings that still had a little of the original mfg paint left, so we just gave those another coat of Citristrip. After a washing and a little light sanding (to get rid of a few rusty spots) they look like they could be put back up without needing to paint them again. I'm not sure how it would work on wood, but I highly recommend it for metal. April 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works GREAT I read the reviews and decided to try the spray. It works GREAT! I used it on an old hutch I purchased prior to painting it and the finish come off easily. I sprayed the hutch and let it sit for an hour. Using a putty knife I was able to easily scrape off the goo. Would most definitely recommend everyone try this. August 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Product worked great with very little odor or smell. The can says you can use indoors but I wouldn't recomend it. It was a bit messy to clean up off the project. But overall, worked well, very little smell, but a bit hard to clean up. August 25, 2015
