How can this be safe? The sds says it contains cance causing chemicals which cause acute resiprariry and skin/& organ reactions. All the safe ones have the same ingredients.
Asked by: Meowmee
The product works well but you have to use it in a well ventilated area or wear a mask. On the precaution labels, they have to put the worse effects of the chemical and usually they occur with multiple exposures not one time use.

Asked by: Smurf
I think it is gentle enough for wicker, not sure about any glue the furniture may have been constructed with (if any). I did not read the label with regard to wicker specifically.

Can I urethane over remaining paint and residue?

I'm stripping old barn doors and love the exposed layers of latex paint after two applications of Citristrip. I'd like to urithane the doors but the remaining paint is still tacky and gummy with residue. Can I urithane if I wait for the doors to cure and if so, approximately how long should I wait? Thank you.
Asked by: Mayday
If you apply a finish without removing the residue, you will likely have a poor finish. One of the ways that you can remove or neutralize the stripping gel is to clean the surface of the doors with odorless mineral spirits. This would leave most of the paint layers and the character of the exposed wood. Recently, I neutralized a very beaten up stair case with a TSP and water mixture. It worked well at letting me remove the paint residues and not taking away the character of the wood. In this case, the paint had already been all but removed. Good luck.

1/2 gal. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 467.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I started stripping my Kitchen Cabinets last year during my vacation. I chose CITRISTRIP Strippin... I started stripping my Kitchen Cabinets last year during my vacation. I chose CITRISTRIP Stripping Gel again this year because it is safe for indoor use with no harsh fumes and it strips multiple layers at a cost lower than most strippers. The application is easy as it is a gel, therefore it is not runny, goes on smoothly and is water cleanup. As I picked up the cupboard door which had the wet gel on it, I somehow held it too close and got a healthy amount of gel on the front of my shirt. After I put my tools away I noticed it, and it was dried on. I washed the shirt in the washer and it all came out. This product meets all if not more of my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing We were trying to use this to strip paint from wood trim and the results were incredibly disappointing. There were a few layers and this only seemed to do one at a time. It was labor and time intensive and after 5 (5!!!!) bottles of this we finally switched to something that worked. Huge waste of money and time.

I didn't really expect something labeled "safe" and "no harsh fumes" to work but it did - and it was so easy to apply! Loved watching the paint lift right off our sponge-painted countertops - it's a very cool chemical reaction that starts taking place within minutes. We had multiple layers of paint caked on for over 10 years. The first layer lifted with no effort on my part. The under layers took a little more scraping and an extra application in some spots but all in all, the paint is all gone and I couldn't be happier! One 64 oz. bottle covered our entire kitchen countertop. I was shocked. . . it goes a long way!

It doesn't produce obnoxious fumes and it did, eventually, remove most of the poly. At least I think it did, because I'm still trying to remove the sticky, gooey mess of Citristrip. Most of it scraped off, but neither an abrasive pad, nor OMS, nor deneatured alcohol will remove the remaining sticky coating and get down to bare wood. I'll have to sand it all off, which will be a mess. It would have been less work to just sand off the poly.

A stripping agent that could cut through so many layers, while being eco friendly, and clean up with soap and water? Bottom line, I used this product, it did what it said it would, I took off a least 5 layers paint off an old oak table. There were a few spots that were extra thick that required a little extra time, but this product is so worth it, and the results are phenominal.

My wife wanted to redo a classic furniture piece so I purchased this product because of all the reviews only to find out the product is worthless. Yes, it is safe for indoor use as there are no toxic fumes which was a couple of the selling points but I wanted something that would do the job. As for stripping multiple layers, it wont even remove a single layer on a concave surface. As advised, the product sat on the surface for over 30 minutes, nothing. Even sat on the surface overnight and still nothing. Wish I could return it but it has been opened so I will now go and invest in another product that, although it may have an odor I know it will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective As you can see in the photo I've included, this stuff works great (photo shows work in progress with door, shelf and drawers stripped)! I only left it on for 30-60 mins and it did the trick. I used plastic scrapers to take it off then I used rough steel wool to get the remaining stripper off followed by less-rough steel wool with mineral spirits to clean up the surface. Next I will do a light sanding before staining. I am sloppy so I did get some on my skin and it didn't irritate at all (though I did clean it off as soon as possible). It smells pretty good too. Does get pretty messy but I don't think there's any way around that when you're stripping furniture. This product exceeded my expectations.
