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 Pro, is a professional duty paint and varnish remover capable of removing up to 10 layers in an application. 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 Pro 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 Pro 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 Pro eliminates the guesswork. It is a semi-paste and therefore clings to vertical surfaces.

  • Can remove most varieties of household paints and varnishes which are water or oil-based including, latex, stains, enamels, lacquers, clear paints polyurethanes, as well as more difficult coatings such as epoxy
  • Can be applied on a multitude of interior and exterior surfaces including wood, plaster, concrete, brick, stone, masonry, marble, metal and fiberglass, etc

Rated 4 out of 5 by It removed years of bottom paint off my 1980 11ft boston whaler Patience is the key and let it soak. I had to scrape off layers as the boat paint was thick but it did the job and using a hose made it work. No toxic fumes and no acetone needed to clean the hull. It took 5 coats to get the paint off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Product for Stripping Brick I used this to strip paint off of two brick chimneys. I used several other products before this, and this was definitely the best and most effective. After letting sit overnight, I was able to scrape off a thick layer of paint, leaving only a thin coloring on the brick, which I had to use a wire brush to finish. It took alot of manpower to get the last layer with a brush, but that was expected on a brick wall. Minimal fumes, so excellent for using indoors. May 10, 2013

Thanks for a GREAT Product!!! May 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by strips old polyurethane on a newly purchased home, I'm using this product to strip brick (paver) floors of 10 yr. old Polyurethane. Works as good as the more caustic and messier conventional stripper. Does a fair job of getting most up but where there are heavier application of the urethane it takes additional coats and a lot of elbow grease. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says...excellent product! Well worth ordering online and waiting for this product. Very little smell and will not eat your skin. Put it on, wait 24 hours or less and you are ready to go. Even if you can't get back to your project right away and the stripper drys up...just spritz with water and it comes alive again. Perfect for working it! Just wish I could walk into the store and pick it up. March 4, 2014
