Questions & Answers

Can I use this indoors

I have a very heavy dining room table but I’d like to keep it indoors while I do this work. Can I use indoors? I have kiddos and animals.
Asked by: Kim3278
You can but you should have good ventilation. Also, whatever coating you are removing may have hazardous materials in them.

Will it remove old penetrating wood stain on antique furniture?
Asked by: NapaJack
I'm working on a vintage executive desk right now, and this has made my process much harder. It's not the good product it was years ago. I'm going back to the strippers in a can. They work much easier and do a better job on the wood. This has made everything sticky, hard to scrape off and twice as much work.

1/2 gal. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel Non-NMP is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 89.

I had a trim job to complete and tried this product. In the photos below, I show the untreated board, coated with Safer Gel, first scraping, second scraping, and third scraping. I left the gel in place for 30 minutes each time on half the board, the other half sat for 90 minutes. It took off the top layer, but only if I used a metal scraper. The recommended plastic scraper did nothing but remove the gel. I'm not sure why this is marked "safer" since the warnings are almost as bad as the nasty strippers. In its favor, the Safer Gel doesn't have the horrible smell of the NMP kind. You are warned to wear chemical resistant gloves, safety glasses, and "open all doors and windows if used indoors" so it sure doesn't sound like it is safer.

It is has a super awesome smell. Actually smells delicious, like oranges or even an orange cream-cicle. I also really like the gel consistency of the stripper. It is easy to spread and stays put. I also like that it is safe to use indoors, you can just put down a drop cloth and get to work. It is ready to remove after 30 minutes of application and the gel stays active for up to 24 hrs. Youy can use it on wood and metal. The best part is that it is biodegradable. I used it while pregnant to refinish my sons changing table.

I found this product after trying another varnish stripper that did not work at all and left chemical burns all over my skin. Citristrip not only has not left me with any chemical reactions, it is easily stripping multiple layers of latex paint off of my wooden deck where the other product didn't even touch it. Very glad to have found this and would definitely recommend.

Tried everything and this is a great alternative and works better than the nasty stuff. Try the Home Depot Citrus Wash Degrease after stripping. It hands down beat the klean stripper after wash.

I am stripping some 80 year old stained/varnished doors to reuse them in a remodel project. CitriStrip did a good job softening the varnish in about 20 minutes and took much of the stain off with a second application. The wood will need bleaching if we decide to use a light colored stain. I scooped up most of the residual glop with plastic scrapers, then wiped the wood down with old t-shirts and mineral spirits. It is low odor relative to many solvent strippers. I worked in an open garage, but did start to feel queezy after several hours of work, which may or may not have been from the CitriStrip (prior experience with other strippers made me ill despite good ventilation). Next time I will use a fan to increase ventilation.

What I like most about the Citristrip gel is how well it works on detailed wood. It sits in and around the grooves of carved wood rather than running off. I've used it on very old frames so I don't know what kind of paint was being removed. The recommened thirty minutes is a good amount of time to start with on flat surfaces with a single layer of paint but I found one hour or over night made removal very easy on detailed carvings with multiple layers of paint. The paint wiped off well with a plastic scubbing pad and an old tooth brush. It has a pleasant odor and you can use it indoors but use ventillation or go outside for big projects.

I arrived at this product because i was trying to use the stripper in my shop which is located in the basement of my house. This creates two problems with using chemical strippers - lack of ventilation, which means i usually have to wear a respirator, and eventually the odors find their way up the stairs to the living space in the house. This product has a pleasant citrus smell like many of our household cleaners. No complaints from the occupants upstairs so far. I am using it on a brick wall with 100 years of paint on it, many rough surfaces so it is taking some time to get it all off - i will update once the project is complete.

The gel is easy to apply with a brush, and it stays in place. I love that there are no harsh chemicals, as well as the pleasant, citrus-orange smell. i've used it on a couple of smaller wood pieces, and I was able to remove the paint after about 2 hours. Clean up was also quite easy- just some water, a sponge and a few micro-fibers cloths. I highly recommend this stripper for anyone preferring to use environmentally friendly products!
