This stuff works great. I used it to strip old paint off a vintage metal pie safe. Someone used spray paint craft paint and some kind of rub on "antique" stain to decorate it. I sprayed ready strip on and 1/2 hour later most of the paint slid right off, just a few small stubborn spots left. One more coat and it was all gone. It didn't damage the old metal. Does not smell bad but still should be used outside or wih windows open.

My hand's a little shakier with a paint brush than it used to be, which I found out in my last paint job that I failed to mask off properly. My bad, I got some paint sloppily over on to my stained woodwork. White paint over wood stain looks about as bad as it sounds. I've tried quite a few products to try and strip the excess paint without tearing through the stained wood as well. I've had no real success until I tried this Back to Nature Ready Strip Safer Paint Remover from Sunnyside. Now look, I was worried because this stuff is supposed to eat through water AND oil based coatings, which is the problem I've been having with a couple other products. This time I sprayed a small test area (as I've done with the other products) and waited the allotted 30 minutes. Then I went back to the test spot and lightly sprayed it again. I followed that with a putty knife (as recommended) to try and basically scrap the white paint off carefully without attacking the stained wood. Much to my delight, with just a slight amount of pressure the white paint scrapped away from the stained wood leaving the wood untouched! I was careful to remove any excess product as it says it will keep on eating at paint for up to four hours after application. For me, those first thirty minutes, followed by a second application, then a flexible putty knife perfectly removed just the white paint.
Look, I'll be the first to say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so being careful and masking areas off BEFORE painting is definitely preferable to cleaning said paint off of places it wasn't supposed to go later, but if you make a mistake and get paint somewhere it wasn't planned to go, this stuff works!
Additionally Sunnyside claims it is environmentally safe. That's a nice bonus. The bottle also said it was odor free, but - to me at least - the stuff smelled really good. The initial odor didn't linger and certainly wasn't pronounced, but what scent it did have was quite pleasant.
Since my less stable painting hands probably won't get any better with time, I'll always be sure to leep some of this Safer Paint remover on hand.

Planning my next winter project to refinish the kitchen cabinets. I have tried this on an area that had steam damage from a coffee maker and it went right down to the wood with very little effort. This will definitely help make short work of a lofty project!

Spray was all over the place once I FINALLY got it to spray! Then, I had to use a roller to spread it. Let it sit for a couple hours and the paint was sticky, not even close to being able to scrape it off. I then poured it on and used a brush. Same result. Returned it.

This was my first time using this type of product and I would try something different in the future. The spray kept clogging then broke. Will be returning!

I used this product to remove paint on aluminium material and I spray it on leave it 20-30 minutes and it wipes off with a paper towel, no smell or fumes, no residue and no mess. It washed off clean as if it was never there and with no damage to the aluminium. Excellent product and safe for the environment.

I tried using this product to clean off dried paint drops of exterior acrylic house paint off my patio steps. I even left it on all night and it still didn't remove the majority of paint. Plus this is a thick liquid and should not even be sold in a sprayer. It hardly sprays so I had to pour it out and spread it with a brush. The product just didn't work for my application.
