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.

I was out of ideas stripping my motorcycle tank down to bare metal. After sanding for hours and getting NO WHERE I decided to take it to a sand blaster at the cost of a minimum of 50 up to 100.00. On a whim I Googled and found this product, after the great reviews I thought i'd take a chance for 7 bucks. I sprayed this on, and literally right before my eyes it just ate through everything and the paint just fell off like warm butter off a corn cob! This product is amazing, I'm so glad a found it, be careful, I got some on my arm and it burned like crazy until I washed it off, but it is simply amazing at removing paint! I wish I could give it 1000 stars!!!!

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.

This product sprayed for about 10 seconds then stopped spraying. I tried cleaning the nozzle with a pin, shaking it for a full minute, and nothing works. What I did get on the project worked amazingly well, so I think the non-spray type would be great. I'm currently waiting for the can to heat up a little, it was about 54 degrees out and I wonder if it's a little too cold. If that's the case I'm still kind of disappointed. Don't use the spray can! Use the brush on!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SATX210 GREAT FOR ALMOST ANY STRIPPING JOB!
I've used Kleen-Strip Aerosol on several of my projects from stripping guitar bodies to years of paint on staircases and cabinetry. Especially with guitar bodies (if you're familiar), many are finished in polyurethane and typically you need to rely on heat to strip these; just spray it on...let it set for a good 20 minutes and use a scraper...works great for me!

I rarely write reviews but after dealing with two of these canisters not working I'm so frustrated I feel I have to. I will be returning this for the brush on type unfortunately because this should've been much easier to use.

This product was recommended to me but after two cans I still have lots of paint to remove and a huge mess. I'll be looking for another product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SinghSong Amazing product!
I used this product to strip a dresser: the base layer was a 50-year-old factory-baked finish that came with the dresser and the top layer was spray paint. I was unsure if anything could take off both, but this product did! The first application took off most of it and I saw the bare wood and the second application took off the rest. I was expecting to be suffocated by fumes, but the product has NO SMELL. It is so easy to use, I would recommend it to everyone!
