Questions & Answers

why does HD indicated "safe to use indoors" when SDS says "Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area"

SDS indicates a lot of personal protection equipment needed & use only outdoors. why the difference btwn Home Depot product details & SDS? Is Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel safe for use indoors or not?
Asked by: PoulsboDave
It appears that you have answered your own question. If it reads "Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area". OR IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA indicates an exception to outdoors so by default it would be an indoors area.

1 qt. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 349.

This product is PHENOMENAL...no fan or ventilation needed..just does the job with a pleasant orange smell...I was amazed. I had 2 coats of Acrylic bathtub paint that's been on for over 3 years and with 4 applications in a 4 hour period, my tub went from peeling and drab to sparkling white...I didn't even know this tub was under there. I thought because the remodellers painted the tub, before I moved there must be something grungy under there, but there was not...WOW! $13 ...AND this 1 qt bottle is more than enough to remove the paint on any standard tub...next time I'll try it on the wood it's advertised to strip...LOL>..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definite thumbs up!! Life changer I was a little wary when compared to other well-known products, but was very PLEASED with Citristrip!! Not only is it non-hazardous and non-harmful to your health, it works!!!! I stripped two coats of Black enamel paint off a 52” square table, needed quart & a half, just one application. Set for 30 minutes and paint scraped off like butter. Black paint was in the wood grain, so used a rough sanding sponge with Citristrip and then wiped with mineral spirits before sanding. Stained and sealed, table is beautiful. Got rid of the other old strippers in my garage and will only use this on other projects.

Do not be lured into false safety by the citric scent. I used one coat for the result shown below. It did its time and when it was up, it did scrape off like fragmented sheets of paper. Very happy...so little went a long way. I will use this for the rest of my cabinets. Again, skeptic at first, so I started off small. The trimming in the pic shows hints of the original dark stain and glaze that was removed easily in ONE app. Unfortunately I had to resize the image to fit. But the island facade is about 5 feet.

This stripper outperforms methylene chloride strippers in some applications. I was stunned. The photograph is of oak window trim. Sometime in the 1920, the trim was initially varnished. In 1945 or earlier, it was professionally painted with oil-based primer and then oil-based paint. It was painted again later by an amateur with another layer of oil-based primer and oil-based paint. This is what the job looked like 12 hours after application. I am a PA-registered and insured home improvement contractor. My crew wears proper protective equipment: nitrile gloves, disposable sleeves, respirators with organic vapor cartridges. We frankly do not care if a paint stripper is murderous toxic, caustic, smelly, whatever. This delivered the performance we needed.

This stuff leaves a gooey mess (I stripped paint off an old desk) but it also does not stink or burn your skin and the fumes don't get to you. After using this, I had to use an after wash to get all the goo off. In the past, I have used a different kind of stripper that was pretty caustic, but the old kind seemed to come off in strips rather than a gooey mess. So.....in some ways, it was better, in some ways not. If you use this, I think you will need an after wash, which did eventually work but it took a while. This is safer though.

I assumed this would be less effective than the regular stuff, but for removing paint and varnish residue from an old door after taking most of the paint off with a heat gun, the Citristrip worked better than my regular paintstripper. And it's much less annoying to work with because it doesn't burn your skin. And it smells a whole lot nicer! I could actually work in my workshop instead of having to work outside.

The only layer that took another coat of stripper was the original paint that was on the door from the factory. We tried Dad's Stripper that was sold to us by a stand alone paint store and that was a total waste of money and precious time. Citristrip has a pleasant smell and was so easy to apply. I used a brush and actually spread some with the metal scraper.
