I needed a product to remove a very thick layer of polyurethane from my wood floor. Purchased a gallon of this product in sprayable form, and one in the jell form. Followed manufacturer's directions. It was a total failure. Needed 5 attempts to get to the wood. I purchased a thin set spreading tool for 4 bucks.. The type that looks like a saw blade on two edges. Also, that spreads a very thin layer. Poured a large glob of the stripper on the floor. Spread it as thick as the teeth of the tool allowed. Waited 10 - 15 minutes. What a difference! Just two attempts and all the poly was gone. The scraping was a snap this time. It was a bear before. On second application, if the stripper is still paste like, it can be applied to a new area.
The moral of the story? Don't send a boy to do a man's job. Use a lot. Save the elbow grease. Not the money.

This stripper works great as long as you let it do the work. My parents gave me an old trunk that my grandfather used when he was a boy, and a massive Army storage chest that was also his. The trunk had been painted many times, and the storage chest was OD green from WW2. The best way to use this product is to put it on semi thick and let it sit at least half an hour, then instead of taking it off, I used a small nylon brush to work the stripper into the wood and metal. One shot was all it took. I removed the bulk of the remaining stripper with a putty knife, and the used Klean Strip After Wash to removed the rest. After than it was ready for paint and stain,

Purchased this stripper to remove the paint off my patio. I was better off just using my pressure washer by itself. Will never purchase again.

Read some of the other reviews and they were mixed about this product, so I thought I'd take a chance on it... Big Mistake..... Put it on.. waited 3 hours.. and absolutely nothing.... only the parts of the paint that were chipped and peeling came off easily. The parts that were smooth actually seemed more difficult to remove.. The surface was absolutely the same as before this product was applied.. Even put it on twice in some spots, and the results were the same... NOTHING.
The product is a gel that can be painted on easily, but other than that, it did nothing... Taking the full gallon plus the 1/2 gallon that I didn't use for a full refund from Home Depot.. They should take this product off of the shelves.

I wasted a couple of hours trying this product. It does make a mess and sorta helps take almost one layer of paint off. But, It has caused me more work in my opinion. It just does not do what it says it is supposed to. It is a waste of money.

Hired a guy several years ago to paint my garage with the rustoleum 2 part epoxy shield. He failed to read directions and didn't etch concrete first. Most of the paint peeled but where the floor was more porous it was stuck good. Used Klean-Strip to remove what was stuck and it worked fantastic! I dumped it right from the can onto the floor then used a small brush on a painting stick to spread it out and work it in. Then went over the floor with the power washer and floor was spotless!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WildG Best stripper I have used
Unlike other strippers, this stripper does the job very well. It has almost no odor, but you should wear a mask, eye protection, and chemical gloves when applying it since it will burn your skin easily.
This stripper tore through paint very quickly. I only had to wait 15 min before the paint was ready to remove, and I could reapply right away. I got through over ten layers of paint, including lead paint, which comes off gooey. When all paint was off, the surface was nice and smooth.
This is great value in that you get an entire gallon, not just one quart or 1/2 gallon like other brands.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Restorer Not a useful paint remover
Was using Strypeeze on a 150-year-old door and was making fast progress with nice results when I ran out. Went to HD to get more but they didn't have it so I bought this. An hour into using this I've concluded that it is utterly ineffective. And it smells as bad as it works. I'm going to return it and resume the project when I can get a real paint remover.
