Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best Product I Found
I recently bought a fixer upper and decided to stain the concrete floors. Unfortunately there was a ton of glue from old vinyl tile, latex paint, and greasy black blobs on the floor. After much frustration with results from many different stripping products on the latex paint (Klean Strip, Tuff Job, Dad's Easy Spray, Soy Gel, Paint Thinner, and more) I skeptically bought a little bottle of Motsenbocker's #5. It not only did better than all other products at taking up the latex paint, it also removed the glue! I couldn't have been more pleased with the results - and it's biodegradable, not very fumy, and easy to clean up. On top of all that, it's cheaper than most other products at $20 a gallon. Home Depot only sells 22 oz bottles in the store so order the gallons online. I used this product with a floor maintainer (big buffer) and then used Rapid Strip wheels on grinders and drills to take up remaining paint. Bean-E-Doo worked for the black blobs and remaining mastic.

Bought a large bottle of this last night to strip peeling paint off our concrete pool deck. Left it on for 8 hours, kept it moist with water and out of the sun. It did not work at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Corvette Good for small jobs
I hoped it would remove large areas of paint from a concrete wall. It did not. I also spilled latex paint onto asphalt and it would not remove it. However, it worked well on smooth concrete in the shade and on clothing.
Recommended for very small jobs only.

I have an older home and wanted to remove the latex paint the former owner painted the whole house with. I can only score the product this way without be too irritated on wasting $20.00.... Paint Removed Zero, latex paint won.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cnielson Worked very well.
Product works very well. Removed latex overstay on hardwood flooring while leaving the floor finish in place. Nice smell and keeps paint in suspension as long as you keep it wet. Use with additional water to keep it moist and pulled up the paint very well

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpy Good, low toxicity latex paint remover
I needed something to take latex paint off of varnished and oil base painted surfaces. This product did the job quickly and easily--leave it on 60 seconds, scrape the paint and wipe off the residue. It doesn't stink out the house and it is mild enough to let my teenager do her own woodwork.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iris Great product. Even takes paint off clothes and furniture.
I got a gallon of Lift Off 5 to fill the spray bottle I have been using on wooden floors that are polyurethaned. For thick drips, I leave it on 25 minutes. For smudges, it takes less time.
Lift Off 5 removes latex paint and Peel Away 7 from my clothes! The directions are very clear. I used Lift Off 5 on a fine wood table that was too near a paint sprayer about 2 years before. Another product smeared the paint. Now there is not a trace of paint left and the finish is like new.
