          Absolute garbage
          Read directions. Watched YouTube videos too to see how others successfully used this. It left a sticky residue that didn't remove anything. Was trying to strip dark varnish, now looks even darker than before. I hope I can sand instead and my antique dresser isn't ruined. So glad I only did one section and not the sides and front. So glad I bought the small bottle and not the large one. Won't buy or use again.

            Ruined
            I have been attempting to refinish a hutch that has been in my family for decades and this product is horrendous. It does not come off easily and leaves a very sticky goop behind. My hutch is possibly ruined as I cannot get this goop off.

              Great product for stripping latex off tile. Get nitrile long gloves and goggles, this stuff is legit.

              Does not remove wood finishing at all
              Used as recommended. Left a thick coat on a wooden table 2 hours to remove the finish. Nothing ever changed so I scraped it all of with a scraper removing almost nothing. Wiped as much of the product off as possible. Left for a few hours to come back to just sand off the finish and the product left a very sticky residue that gummed up the sandpaper and made it almost impossible to sand. Not sure what my next steps even are. Trying to wash off with soap and water. Might have wrecked the table.

                It leaves some sort of oil.
                It took tow applications, and left an oily residue and the wood has spots all again. will not buy againg.

                  Works great !
                  Works great with virtually no effort! With a brush thickly and evenly apply it to the surface, walk away, and watch the paint curdle. I’m stripping the paint on my side entry door to paint it black. I was so surprised at how well it works. With a spackle knife just gently scrape away and done !

                    Ruined My Cabinet
                    I used Citristrip on a wooden cabinet, thinking it would be easier than sanding the louvered doors. It left dark, oily stains that I could not clean or sand out. I tried every suggestion I could find- mineral spirits, baking soda, everything- to salvage this wood. But my dream vanity cabinet was ruined. Don’t use this product on anything you’re attached to, folks.

                      Best thing to remove old paint
                      I first tried to use a heat gun and a putty knife to strip multiple layers of old paint. Very laborious and slow process.This stuff loosened 3 layers of old paint in a matter of an hour. As soon as you see old paint shriveling, you can easily scrape it off with a putty knife. Repeat to take off more layers. Then wait a day or two untill this stuff dries out and you can start painting or tiling.

                        I think most reviews of this product are in error
                        I am stripping the old paint off a 1949 cello. I was using Klean Strip and it was working fine. But I ran out and got Citrus Strip just to finish up So far everything I read about this product is wrong. It dries just as fast as Klean Strip and it seems like you have to use 3 times as much. I had to use a brass wire brush and apply it 4 times. It may not smell but the old paint coming off is like glue and does not want to wipe off. Had to use soap and water to get this stuff off.
