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.

Instead of selling my bar & buying a new one for $1k or more I decided to strip it. The HD guy said it worked well but to use a plastic scraper which works. You have to apply liberally . I did about 3 coats and cleanups which was exhausting but so worth the 1 day work. I let it sit overnight but it dried so I read some people Put plastic on it overnight which I didn’t do. But the 3!coats worked and exposed the wood nicely. It is a messy cleanup though and the smell isn’t so strong . I used it inside and just opened the back door for ventilation. I cleaned up the rest and guess I need Mineral spirits now to get it ready for a grey oak varnish. 1 gallon in this large bar was enough

You do need patience especially if there are several layers of paint, varnish, etc. usually overnight. I've been working on this desk for a week now trying to remove all the paint that this didn't remove. For me, this is a better alternative than the toxic stuff out there. The smell, at first, reminds me of dreamsicle ice cream, then after a while it is sickenly sweet. I worked inside and didn't have any issues, didn't wear gloves either. It does leave a film of some sort so you do need to clean after using this product. It uncovered some type of varnish or stain under the paint which it doesn't remove. Overall, I think this works ok especially for a novice furniture stripper who doesn't want to cross over into the toxic fields. Just don't expect miracles after 15 minutes, the longer its on the better it works - watch for the wrinkling of old paint, then usually wait a little longer, use a plastic scraper and start removing.

I put it on hardened paint brushes that were never cleaned properly and work it into as much of the petrified bristles as possible. Then wrap them tightly with plastic wrap and leave them set for 4 or 5 days before unwrapping them, combing out the bristles and washing them. Have saved several old brushes this way and made them usable again. Also, I was able to remove the paint from a portable folding metal camp table and refinish it. That took a day and two coats in a few places. Overall, good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love with Citrustrip. This is the most amazing product! I started off with making a huge mistake on grouting by not being careful enough with epoxy grout. Anyone with experience with epoxy grout will know that once you make a mess it is insanely hard to remove. I tried laquer/paint thinner, acetone...you name it and I tried it. Nothing worked and the fumes were horrible. Then I stumbled upon this at Home Depot and as a last resort I purchased it. I brushed the entire floor with the Citrustrip and left it for 24hrs. Went back to the tiles and the epoxy had flaked up and it was just a matter of scraping the excess off. Also used it to remove layers of paint on window trims. Not only is this product amazing, it also exceeds what is advertised and also smells really nice. I have never taken the time to write a review on anything online before and am taking the time to write about this product because it really is that good.

Used it to strip a rifle stock for refinishing. After 5 heavily brushed on applications, it was stripped, including the polyeurethane, to the bare wood. After each application, gently wiped the stock with a plastic spatula to get the bulk of residue off, then liberally hosed it down with warm to hot water from a hose connected to the hot water heater, and let the stock dry before applying the next coat. Citristrip cleared the checkering and the action. Do not let it sit overnight, it makes the residue more difficult to remove, a couple of hours for each application is sufficient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Real review, from real person in real world. I felt the need to post a real review on this Citristrip. It’s very obvious that there is plenty of paid reviews. I honestly would give this a 2 star rating but i feel the need to average out the extra high reviews so it gets a 1. Product does work....however it will not take off multiple layers as promised and you better have plenty of time on your hands. It takes over 10 times longer than other products i have tried. It has minimal odor and fumes, so if that trade off is worth it to you go ahead and try it. Otherwise get some stuff that works like aircraft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to strip a tabletop covered with an inconceivable amount of stain and varnish. I HA... I bought this to strip a tabletop covered with an inconceivable amount of stain and varnish. I HATE stripping paint & stain so I sanded a section to the bare wood but it took hours for a small section so I decided to try Citristrip. Since the directions on the container are extremely vague, I guessed at how much I needed to apply and went with a thin strip. I waited 20 minutes (as some suggested in the reviews) and not much of anything came off. Disappointed, I tried again but this time I slathered the wood with a thick coating of Citristrip. I waited 2 hours and that did the trick. All those layers of varnish came off quite easily (although with a huge mess). The varnish came off but the dark stain remains so I'm still sanding, but it's taking a fraction of the time it would have without the Citristrip. I prefer this over other products I used in the past simply because the smell is tolerable.
