Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by handyguy Good on latex but struggled with enamel
I stripped several layers of paint from a bathroom diffuser. Buying a new one would have been easier except my fifty-year old model has four screw holes and the new ones only three. So, I decided to recondition the one I had. The layers of latex came off easily. Then I discovered the original factory enamel was an off-white rather than the ceiling white I wanted. That layer was already damaged by the stripper. So, removing it too was necessary. Here's where this stripper struggled. I used the entire 18 oz can (almost) stripping an 8 inch metal diffuser. The base enamel was really more than the stripper could handle. I finished the stripping project with a wire wheel on my bench grinder. Primed and painted the reconditioned diffused looked good and cost less than new.
Note that nitrile glove will NOT stand up to this stuff for more than a minute or two. I went through six or eight pair doing this job.
So, good stripper for most but not all paint surfaces.

Tried to use this to remove varnish and stain on hand rail. After 2 applications each over an hour apart I don't see any bare wood yet. Will try something stronger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BaileyFamily704 Worked wonders & Saved me HOURS
I had been sanding and removing old paint from my daughter's bunk bed for the last week and was still only half done and many sheets of sandpaper in when my father mentioned this product to me. It has been a HUGE time saver. I was able to lay out almost all of the remaining pieces and spray them at the same time. I left them for about 15 minutes and came back to the easiest paint removal project ever. I am now about two boards away from being completely done and ready to stain. This is the most time saving product. I would definitely buy it again. In fact,I am headed back to the store now to get more to finish the rest.

Bought this to remove some latex paint from some metal speaker covers. Followed the directions with a very poor result. Not satisfied with the results I tried Jasco paint stripper that was excellent for the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Northboul Works great!
This was so much easier for me than the "paint on" paint stripper. The spray is quick and easy and works amazingly. The only down side is that the spray doesn't cover as much as the paint on. I need 2-3 spray bottles to cover the amount 1 "paint on" bottle can cover

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wil Total dud.
Had no problems with the sprayer nozzle like previous reviewers had - it sprayed as a wide mist, like aerosol window cleaner. The manufacturer must have fixed that. Unfortunately, the chemicals inside didn't do squat to remove, flake, or otherwise damage oil-based paint on my concrete foundation. It bubbled up in a few areas and scraping it did nothing from 15 minutes to 60 minutes in. I think the chemicals in the batch I had must have been bad. I hit it with my 1600psi pressure washer the next day (using the turbo paint stripping tip), and it didn't even damage the paint's bond enough to blast away with the pressure washer.
I also found the directions lacking for cleanup on the product packaging. It wasn't clear what the appropriate cleanup should be.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GMan Great Stripper. Read the Instructions When It Clogs
This stuff melted old enamel pretty quickly. It dispenses in a narrow stream, so you will have to work to get a lot of coverage. Definitely wear heavy duty gloves. It melted through a disposable nitrile glove in 10 minutes.
If you are trying to cover a large area, it will probably stop spraying after a minute or two. Follow the instructions and submerge the can in hot water. I would suggest taking a bucket of hot water to your work area. When it seems to clog up, submerge the whole can and swish around for a few seconds. Should be good to go.
