Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great paint remover Works! Sometimes requires leaving it on and then a bit of elbow grease, but it does the job. Disappointed only with a few plastics, where the paint actually dissolved some of the surface and made removal impossible, but can't fault the remover. February 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awsome Product Grabbed this product as last resort in hopes that It would clean up some spray paint my genius son got on the concrete driveway when he decided to spray paint his bike. Spray paint is not listed on the bottles label but I took a chance. I applied this product as the label states and worked it in with a wire brush. Let it set for a few minutes and rinsed it off with water. Paint gone and my wife is HAPPY! January 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaintErase Spot Remover I had a small area outside of my bathroom that had gotten black dye dripped on it. I had tried numerous products to remove it and then I received this product and tried it. The first attempt lightened it then I did it a secod time and left it on for about 15 minutes and then used a paint scraper and damp rag and wiped it clean. The wood floor is old but the spots are completely gone. December 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing - removed 2 yr old paint on carpet When my home was last painted, the painters splattered paint on the carpet. I tried several removers and nothing worked. I didn't think this would work either, but I was very surprised. I'm talking about removing paint the size of a pencil eraser or less. My carpet is very light. The paint was removed and the only way you could tell anything had been there was the carpet was a little roughed up. When I had scrubbed the spot previously, I was a little agressive. I learned that you have to dab/rub at the paint spot BEFORE the solution dries. When I rewetted the spot & dabbed/rubbed again, the paint smeared a little. I let the solution work about 30 minutes for the best results. Since the paint was two years old, I used the solution two or three times to get all the paint removed. For me this was a miracle product. May 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works, but doesn't work miracles. I tried this on three different spots on white carpet. -Spilled nail polish previously tried to clean with nail polish remover. (1 month old) Nail polish color is lighter but not gone. -Green paint spilled, previously cleaned with water. (9 months old). Completely gone!!! -White paint drop, no cleanup attempted. (Not sure how long) Less than there was before. This was a pretty tough job and I did see improvement but spots were not totally removed. No damage was noticed to the carpet. I used almost the entire bottle. June 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I'd Recommend... We had our deck retreated, and although the finished product was great, our handyman didn't take too many precautions to not get paint on the siding. Luckily this product did a pretty good job of removing the dark colord deck stain from the lighter-colored siding. It took multiple applications, but it got the job done. February 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by An ounce of prevention... I was about to report that this product didn't work at all, but after three applications - and a lot of elbow grease - it did take the paint off from the surface where it dripped. This was hardened and well dried paint, so it might work better if the paint isn't completely cured yet. But it won't just wipe off. You'll be using a putty knife or some sort of scraper to get it off. I see where some people were using this on carpeting and what not. It might work better on fabrics, I'm not sure. I got it for a section of woodwork that I got over zealous on last paint job. It'll get the spots off, but it won't be easy... and it won't be perfect. On the upside, at least it doesn't smell any where near as harsh as petroleum based products you may have used in the past. And it doesn't seem like it would do any harm to your skin at all. Bottom line, adhere to the old adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's going to take you a pound or two with this product to correct your rash paint mistakes. June 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Paint uneasy I would not recommend you waste time with this product. You come out better just using a putty knife to remove the paint instead. Once you put it on the paint that needs to be removed; it has to stand for fifteen or more minutes, but you have to use quite a bit of elbow juice. December 30, 2013
