I needed to paint latex paint on woodwork that had been painted with high gloss paint. A test patch of new paint on the high gloss revealed that the new paint could be easily scratched off with a fingernail. Then, I washed an area, of the woodwork, with the deglosser. Visibly, the difference between the washed wood and the unwashed wood was subtle. I painted the washed area along with some of the unwashed area next to it. After the paint dried, I tried to scratch it off. The difference was significant. The new paint was stuck to the wood that had been washed with the deglosser.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nandy Good product, works as described.
Wanted to resurface the bathroom cabinet which had some sort of glaze/poly/shine on it. This EASY LIQUID SANDER took it off in one application. I wanted to be sure so used it twice.

This product saves so much time by not having to sand. No odor. Be sure and wear chemical resistant gloves and goggles. I use this all the time.

Product only seemed to put a film on metal. Didn't seem to scuff or sand at all.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DennisH Works well - with limitations
I am a painter and tried this product for the first time when painting previously varnished wood rather than my usual routine of cleaning and sanding. It took a bit to learn how much rubbing was necessary to penetrate the old finish and make a new surface. More then a quick wipe, but not a laborious scrub. it dries quickly and provided a stable substrate for a latex topcoat. I don't yet know how strongly it binds to the wood. Will it resist chipping? We'll see.
Instructions mention that some surfaces should be precleaned with TSP like cleaner. True. Kitchen cabinet doors, with the oil from hands, bled right through. This product is not a sealer like an oil or shellac primer. In my case, even using TSP before rubbing on the liquid sander was not enough to prevent bleed through. I ended up using an oil primer. In that case, the liquid sander was unnecessary.
Overall, I liked this product and will use it again- but not for surfaces that are heavily soiled with bleed through. There, the old standby primers remain the best.

Tried to remove the high gloss from kitchen cabinet so it would take a stain. I tried this and it removed little if any. I was so hopeful it would be an easier way to remove the gloss coating. I will have to go back to a more caustic gloss remover.
