Questions & Answers

will this product remove epoxy paint off of cast iron tub

Asked by: Pete
Read the MSDS before use. Several professional tub refinishers died recently from using this chemical without proper ventilation, which led to new regulations from EPA/OSHA.

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

Will this remove latex paint from wood doors

Asked by: 49dodge
Yes, however you will still need to sand. 1st medium then fine grit to restore wood - before varnish.

will this work to remove lead base paint off of window sills, baseboards etc....
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.

1/2 gal. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 544.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product hightly recommend Purchased this product a few days ago, 12 quarts, since the product does not come in the gallon size. I used the paste on the hallway and the steps. The paste gave the hallway a pleasant citrus odor. I underestimated the powerful use of this product. I left it on overnight. The next day all of the 3-4 layers of paint was penetrated. I covered a larger area than I could have completed in one session. The next day I returned to remove the remainder of the paste on the wood. Surprisingly the paste did not harden on the wood, removing the paint was extremely easy. Word of caution when using this product definately cover the floor, because the paste leaves a pink stain which is extremely difficult to remove from the floor. I have used several other paint strippers before but citristrip is definately the most superior of the strippers. Citristrip makes stripping paint seem so effortless. I am so excited that I am looking around the house for pfrojects to strip. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 Projects 2 different results. The CITRISTRIP stripping gel worked great on my FIRST project which was stripping the steps inside my house. It did not have any bad odor or harsh fumes just a strong citrus scent, I applied it generously to the steps and let it sit over night, the next day the stripper had done its job it had bubbled up and the scraping and clean up went very well and the gel did not damage the wood at all. One word of caution make sure you wear gloves and goggles when using this product I accidently got some in my arm and it did start to give a burning sensation. Now onto my Second project with CITRISTRIP , I applied the stripper to an old trestle table I was restoring , the results were totally opposite , no pealing of the paint at all. I would recommend the CITRISTRIP to anyone interested in purchasing it however do a small test area first and see how it is going to perform on your project if it works then great if it does not then you can return it to HOME DEPOT. (I take time to do product reviews, help keep me doing them by rating my review) hope this review was helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product was an absolute waste of time,effort and money. Wanted to remove paint stains from ... This product was an absolute waste of time,effort and money. Wanted to remove paint stains from 53 year old pine stairs after pulling up carpet. Very bad white paint stains on stairs . Applied product as directed. covered with plastic and left overnight. Checked this morning and began removing product from stairs. No affect at all on the smallest paint stains. On the plus side it did a good job removing one layer of stain and varnish, I had previously applied. This product was not effective at all as a paint remover. I would have had better and cheaper results with heavy grade sandpaper. I will be returning the unused portion to Home Depot to get a refund. I researched a lot of paint removers . I read all the positive reviews about this product and had high expectations for the results. Product does leave a white and gummy residue that I will probably have to sand off. Will not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best that I have used I tried a couple other strippers before "thankfully" finding Citristrip. This stuff does the trick. I had a bedroom suit that had several layers of stubborn varnish and paint. They didn't stand a chance against Citristrip. The old varnish and paint just laughed at the other strippers. They took a couple coats and then they didn't strip near as well as Citristrip. The secret is to brush on a nice THICK coat and let it sit for awhile. The little bit of remaining residue comes off easily with a rag and after wash. If you have a thick layer of residue remaining (which I doubt) then use after wash and a #1 steel wool pad then follow with a rag using after wash again. The stainless pad has the added benefit of a course sanding. (always go with the grain) You can use the Citristrip indoors according to the label but I didn't simply because the after wash should not be used indoors without a respirator. It will stink up the house. Save yourself some time and use this product. One application is all you will need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works okay, not consistently bubbling up the paint layers. Need mutiple applications. Okay. This product has a mild orange scent. Don't let that fool you, its not the citrus that is peeling away the paint but a chemical doing the work. Is it as strong as the other paint strippers that has warning labels that can almost kill you? No. Does it bubble up the paint layers? Yes, but not consistently. Some areas you need to apply second coat of the stuff, lay it on thick too. Or you have to go over the paint surface with a little bit of sandpaper to scratch the paint surface a bit. In some paint areas it just didn't work at all, just dried up to a chalking fllm until I used some sandpaper to scratch the surface then reapplied this gel. For those areas that bubbled up, yes it was clean underneath and easy to remove, for other areas still had to do some scrapping and a sanding sponge abit. Would I still use it in the future? Sure, but realize the tradeoff in comparison to the performance to the harsh chemical paint strippers that comes in a "metal" container.
