Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by ehack This product really works and helps with the mess!
This product really kept the mess of scraping popcorn to a minimum. We have scraped a ceiling without it in the past and the mess was huge. With this scraper, most of the mess did actually go into the bag! We emptied the bag a couple of times, as it would get heavy. The only downside is that you can't get all the way to the wall with it. We will continue to use this scraper for the rest of the house!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by sdbF1x1t Quality tool for a messy job
This is a well made and designed tool for scraping popcorn from ceilings. The tool includes an attachment for hanging a plastic bag to catch the ceiling debris. The tool will not reach effectively into corners and a small scraper will be needed for any detail work. The secret to easy use is making sure the popcorn is very well dampened - wet, but not soaked. A hand spray bottle is not sufficient and a garden type sprayer is recommended. If you're doing a big area, skip the baggie and just cleanup disposable ground covers afterwards. Also, wear eye protection!

We've used this before with great success; it still works fine. Because we have SO many rooms to scrape we bought another one--just in case. Didn't want to be in the middle of that messy job and have it break. This tool helps make this job so much easier and cleaner (no way to avoid a huge mess with this job).
I'm very grateful to the person who suggested just emptying the bag when it got too heavy and not changing it every time (ashamed to admit I didn't think of that). That saves a LOT of time.
If the clips that come with this tool break or get lost, those small office-type binder clips work very well to hold the bag on.
Been hoping my fairy godmother would stop by some time and finish the other rooms, but so far, she hasn't been here....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by Charliethecat Not worth it.
I just finished stripping popcorn from about 1200 sq ft of ceiling. I bought this and had a 6" puddy knife laying around. After about 50 sq ft this tool was laying on the ground and the puddy knife was used for the rest. Put some plastic down and collect the popcorn at the end. The bag is too much hassle, and the tool does not reach the edges of the ceiling b/c of the way it is designed, so you'll need a puddy knife anyway. When used, it does not remove the popcorn cleanly - it removes more in the middle of the tool and less toward the edges. The puddy knife was sharper and removed the popcorn more cleanly. I spent $20 on it so I tried to use it b/c i felt obligated to myself to at least get some of my money's worth out of it. I wish I could have spent that $20 on some paint.

The trick to having success with this tool is ensuring the ceiling is very damp. I purchased a two gallon pump sprayer from Home Depot to apply water and vinegar. I guess the vinegar breaks down the popcorn texture. I added half hot water and half white vinegar to the sprayerâs container, pumped and sprayed until the ceiling was very damp and soaked. I placed a plastic bag to the scraper and attached it with clips to hold the bad in place. The ceiling came off with little effort. The plastic bags have to be replaced often make sure you have plenty of them. I removed popcorn from my entire house in about seven hours, with little effort and mess.
