Product Overview

For the past 11 years, Back to Nature has been a manufacturer of safer paint and varnish removers, lead paint abatement products, and exceptional cleaning products. Ready-Strip Plus, is a unique paint and varnish remover capable of removing up to 7 layers in a single application using a stripping tool. The revolutionary Color Change feature signals the time for paint removal. The stripper is applied to the surface and turns off-white or a pale green when the paint or varnish is READY to be removed. Ready-Strip Plus is non-flammable, biodegradable, virtually odorless and can be cleaned up with water. It does not contain methylene chloride, caustic, flammable chemicals or harmful vapors like many traditional strippers. Ready-Strip Plus avoids the uncertainty associated with other strippers that are ineffective if removed too soon, or dry out and do not work if left on too long. Ready-Strip Plus eliminates the guesswork. It is a semi-paste and therefore clings to vertical surfaces.

  • Ready-Strip Plus can remove most varieties of household paints and varnishes which are water or oil-based including, latex, stains, enamels, lacquers, clear paints as well as polyurethanes, etc
  • Can be applied on a multitude of interior and exterior surfaces including wood, plaster, concrete, brick, stone, masonry, marble, metal and fiberglass, etc
  • Ready-Strip Plus will not damage plaster or wood (discolor or raise the grain) or affect any surface it is used on
  • Color Changing design removes guess work from stripping jobs
  • Safe Paint and Varnish Stripper turns off-white or pale green when it's ready to be removed
  • Non-flammable and biodegradable
  • 1 Gal. covers approximately 50 sq. ft.

Can this be used on old paint possibly lead based?

Asked by: Ktg
Hi-Yes. This product can be used on most coatings including lead paint. This product is a paste, so it will encapsulate the dust in the paint to ensure safe removal. Good Luck!

1 gal. Safer Paint and Varnish Remover and Environmentally Friendly is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have done several pieces in my life. SEVERAL. I have used a product similar to ready strip and had great success, but I was disappointed with the performance of the Ready Strip. Followed the directions and it left the old varnish first really gooey and left a bit longer it was like a hard shell. I did two end tables and had more success just sanding the second table than stripping it. I have been sanding the "stripped" one for hours. Never again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready Strip Nothing better! I've been using Ready Strip for years! Nothing works better. A slight odd smell, but no fumes and is safe. Wouldn't use anything else!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow.. so easy to use. We have a home built in 1902, the old lath and plaster kind with real hardwood oak trim. The trim was covered up buy 8 layers of paint some that was chipping off. Knowing about lead I wanted a safe way to get the paint off the trim and make it original again. After applying this within 30 min before I even made it to the other side of the door the paint was " bubbling off" I can not be happier I see real oak boards again. I am disabled and this was easy for me to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well but takes a long time... I used Ready Strip to remove the 1/8" thick paper backing left after I peeled-up vinyl flooring glued to concrete. I first tried scraping off remaining paper backing using a scraping tool with no stripper -- that was non-starter. I then tried Ready Strip and left it on for several hours, but that wasn't enough time. I figured out that the key was to leave it on for 8 hours or more. I kept the floor wet, by applying a second coat of stripper or by using a very wet brush with just water. After much time had passed, the glued paper backing was easily scraped off the concrete. I can only attest to using it for this purpose -- I haven't tried removing paint, varnish or other finishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is the only one i will use After using other paint removers i will never use anything but ready strip it does the job with almost no smell and so much less mess. Put it on a little thick and when it starts to change color it is about time to take it off just do not let it dry to long. The trick is not to take it off to soon or let it dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am currently using the Ready-Strip to remove several layers of paint from the frame of one of m... I am currently using the Ready-Strip to remove several layers of paint from the frame of one of my bedroom doors. It's an old house; built in the 1940's. The frame is steel. I had to use about 4 thick coats of the Ready-Strip. The paint doesn't come off easily, but it does come off each time that I use it. The paint is messy and sticky once I remove it. Clean up isn't that bad to me, but it is messy. The Ready-Strip leaves a sticky residue once all of the paint is removed. I was able to test it with some acetone nail polish remover that I applied to a cotton ball and the sticky residue came off. I know that paint remover will finish the job. It's a lot of work, but I am glad that I purchased this product. It doesn't smell. It doesn't burn (has no effect at all) when it gets on my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from effective, but... SO expensive, use only for smaller rooms/projects. One gallon got two layers of concrete paint off beautifully, but only about 10 square feet. It has to be put on so thick that it doesn't go very far. Works better than anything else I tried, though. Stripped right to the concrete if left on overnight, didn't smell bad.
