Questions & Answers

Can this strip white paint off woodwork? What will the woodwork look like after?

I have white painted woodwork..a dumb diy attempt now would like it back to wood finish will this ruin the actual woodwork?
Asked by: Kc
Paint strippers such as this one are mostly used to strip paint from wood. It works well. On wood, it is best to use plastic scrappers like a plastic putty knife. Also, it is best to use plastic pads that substitue for steel wool. Less care is needed if you are painting rather than restoring the wood finish. The stripper may or may not remove the stain. Most likely it will remove some of the stain. Good luck

Asked by: ed
Yes, it should. It’s much stronger than it seems. I even temoved tub enamel paint With this stuff. I use it a lot, on wood trim, too. I recommend you brush it on liberally, let it sit overnight, and it should bubble up like hot cheese. Then you can remove it with a scraper or a drywall knife, it should come off pretty easy.

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.

I mix two parts Cirtistrip with one part Zep Heavy Duty Citrus Degreaser©, let stand for 30 minutes, then scrape the softned adhesive with a trial, then scrub a 2nd treatment with a stainless steel wire brush.

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 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great! I don't often write reviews and when I do it is usually because the product didn't live up to my expectations, however this is different, I couldn't be more pleased with this product's performance. I needed to strip my metal garage door that had 2 layers of paint, the base layer was factory applied (not sure if this was latex or oil), the second was a latex color coat applied by my homes builder. I put a generous coat of this stripper on it and you could actually hear it working, it sounded like "Rice Krispies" snap crackle and pop. I let it sit for about a hour, and the just used a putty knife and it took of both layers clean as a whistle.

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!

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.
