I used this product to remove heavy overspray from latex paint/primer. The underlying floor was coated with epoxy. Used a spray bottle to coat the DRY surface, the more the better or course. I then took a stiff bristled brush on a handle and after a couple minutes of wait time did a crossing pattern and the paint just melts away. I then used a 3000 psi gas powered power washer to blast it to a clean unharmed epoxy surface. Let the chemical do the work, if after scrubbing it looks like it won't spray clean, do yourself a favor and apply just a little more with your spray bottle and rescrub. Then spray it away. Once your floor is WET the chemical won't work as well as it does dry so don't wast your product. I have 5000 ft2 to cover and I ordered 7 gallons which should leave me some. Next time I'll cover the floor.... Experiment a bit with your sprayer to determine the optimum coverage, it took less than I thought it would.

I got this because I need to strip some paint off a cinderblock wall in my basement, it is the only paint stripper I could find that I could use in a confined space.
It works great, much better than the gel stuff I used on a dresser last year. Spray it on, leave it for a minute, then scrape it off (in this case I'm using a wire brush, which works awesome).
It's mostly Acetone, so it smells like nail polish remover, I can work for about 45 minutes in the basement before I start to get loopy, which is about all I can tolerate anyways.
It's much faster than any pain stripper I've used before, if it doesn't come off on the first round I spray it again, on really thick spots it has taken 3 coats, but never more than that. This paint has been on the wall since the 70s or 80s and it comes right off with the wire brush.

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 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vermonter I don't think this is meant to remove paint from wood.
you need a better description on what this is for.

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 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.

I had to remove latex paint from vinyl composite tile flooring. I was concerned that methylene chloride based paint stripper would "melt" the tile, so I had been looking for a paint stripper with a different chemical base. Tried a different "green" water-based stripper, without any success. Tried a 22 oz. bottle of Motsenbocker's #5, and, voila! Within about 20 - 30 minutes, the paint was softened to the point where I could scrub it off with a scrub pad and a reasonable application of elbow grease. Yes, it did require a couple of applications and repeated scrubbing, but this product was quite effective in removing latex paint from vct tile, without noticeable effect on the vinyl tile. *Disclaimer* - I did not allow this product to sit on the vinyl tile for more than about 30 minutes tops at any given time before I would scrub the paint, and mop up the residue.
