CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by powerful, fast, cheap Works great as long as you follow the directions and time it properly. It's more like a clear gel than a paste - will drip of you put too much on the brush. Apply thickly in one direction. Set a timer. Remove with a plastic scraping tool a few within the 15 minute window. Don't let it sit much longer than 15 mins. Work in small sections at a time. It effectively removed 5-10 layers of paint from my 90-year-old wood trim around windows/doors - a mixture of latex, oil and lead paint. Some areas needed 2-3 applications. Some areas came off entirely on the first coat. The paint bubbled up within 2 minutes! I also used a metal scraping tool for stubborn areas. Also be sure to wear protective gloves, eyewear & mask - errant paint chunks that land on your skins/eyes will burn! Put down a drop cloth and have a container to put all the paint globs. Seems impossible to not make a mess. Tape off walls/surrounding areas that have paint/surfaces that would be damaged by the stripper gel. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WORKS PERFECTLY I can say that the 1 star review for this product is ridiculous...I am a professional refinisher and have used this product for years its the only one in my shop. It has always removed every finish I have applied it too...maybe the previous reviewer was not applying it correctly example: stripper should not be applied like paint, brush one direction do not go back over what you just applied you will close up the air pockets stripper needs oxygen to start the chemical process of lifting off the finish. This product is the best and I have used most on the market. November 3, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stuff I accidentally bought a variation of this product and was so disappointed. Make sure you buy the "Premium Stripper" and not the "Strip-X" by this brand. This product did an excellent job removing 4-5 layers of paint from an old interior door we purchased to restore. I have used other brands and feel that this product is noticeable superior.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Negative reviews are correct A "fair" rating is more that adequate for this. Initially I thought I had possibly skipped a step but I must echo what has already been said. This stuff is not very good. I was trying to remove the stain from a project. First off, the consistency can best be described as gloppy. There is no way you can get a consistent layer of stripper down. Then the "15 minutes"...well after 18 minutes I tested with a scraper and while the stipper had at least tinged brown in color, it was obvious that it didn't do anything more than dull the finish. I left on even longer (27 minutes) and the results were no better. I'm sure there will be "thumbs down" as far as "helpful" as there are on other negative reviews. Apparently the manufacturer has nothing more for their employees to do. However, I suggest you pass on this "premium" stripper. It's anything but. I rated it fair because at least the stripper removed "some" of the finish. But as some have noted, I probably could have gotten the same results with a good wash. March 9, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best one Ive used I was needing this for my stairs. I bought the best kind Lowes had and it didnt even touch the paint. I did some research online and looked at reviews and thought Id give this a try, and work instantly! There was 2 layers of paint and a stain on the stairs, took the paint of all the way through. The stain is coming off with each coat, Im needing to use a scraper to get the tough spots off though(and in the grooves). I didnt bother "painting" it on there I just poored it on there and spread it around with a paint brush, dont be stingy with it! I would definantly recomend this to anyone. I dont know what happen to the cans the other reviewer had, maybe they made a bad batch but this product worked great for me! June 25, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Incredible I have used other paint strippers in the past and was never impressed with the results. Even though it says you can scrape this off in 15 minutes, I didn't think it would be that easy. I needed to take the finish off of a coffee table that was worn. I applied the product, waited 15 minutes and started scraping. I could not believe my eyes. 95% of the finish came off with one pass of the scraper. It came off in a wrinkled up sheet, the consistency of silicone rubber. I applied a little more to touch up some stubborn areas, those scraped off after a 3-4 minute soak. Finally, I wiped the whole surface down with mineral spirits and I'm ready for sanding and refinish. I'm very skeptical when trying out new products. This product is one that actually holds up to the claims on the label. December 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Perfect! I had some residual poly on a table top that I needed to remove. The left over finish was an oil/urethane mix and this removed it flawlessly. I am now able to finish sand and start building up my new finish. This product does exactly what it claims to do, and I couldn't be happier! August 15, 2013
