This stuff is made of miracles wrapped in unicorn magic. I used it to strip the paint and primer off my kitchen cabinets before repainting. I found that slathering them in this luscious goop and letting them sit over night made the paint scrape off in what can only be described as beautiful florets of rolled ice cream. In all seriousness though, this stuff made my project so much easier and it doesn’t smell like poison. CitriStrip for the win!

Easy Stripper Works
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] CITRISTRIP Paint & Varnish Stripping Paste Use CITRISTRIP Paint & Varnish Stripping It is an easy to use paste to remove multiple layers of dried latex and oil-based paint, varnish, lacquer, polyurethane and shellac from wood, metal and masonry surfaces. I really appreciate how it stays wet and active for up to twenty-four hours. It allows stripping of multiple layers in one step, and I need time-saving products to help me with getting my projects done as quickly as possible since I work from home. The fact that CITRISTRIP Paint & Varnish Stripping Paste puts off no noxious fumes to breathe in is very important as well. I used this to remove a light coat of varnish on a very large cabinet. It was easy to apply a thin coat, allow it to work, and scrape and wipe down to prepare the surface for new paint. I did a test spot to remove several coats of thick paint from a small child's chair as well. I applied a thicker later and covered it with plastic, and allowed it to work over night. It removed most of the paint, but I will apply another treatment of the CITRISTRIP Paint & Varnish Stripping Paste to remove it all. The only con that I can see is that you have to adjust your application amount and timing depending upon what kind of project that you are doing. That also means that you must underestimate how much CITRISTRIP Paint & Varnish Stripping Paste you need per project and might have to run back to them store to purchase more. Overall, it worked well for my needs. It saved me lots of time and sanding, and I was able to paint and complete my cabinet in a short time.

      Pleased with product
      I am very pleased with this product it does the job of removing varnish and paint from surfaces. Best results when left over night but within hours it also worked quickly. I would recommend this product to anyone with these types of projects.

      Terrible results for enamel, latex and varnish results were good. I used Citristrip in the past on bicycle frames and while slower than more aggressive strippers it was acceptable due to being more user friendly. This formulation has changed and the label brags that NMP was removed which must have been what worked in the past. User-friendly, non-carcinogenic, biodegradable, low odor, zero VOC and does not require neutralization is all great but if it does not work on oil based paint as the jug says it will it is unacceptable. The first photo show the jug as received with a dent in the bottom that leaked and discolored the box, it should be shipped in a plastic bag. Second is the easy to apply paste on the frame. Third is after scraping and the forth after a repeat of the paste and stripping a second time. It worked so poorly I tried it on a door that needs refinishing and the latex came off well and then just checked a hidden spot of varnish and that seemed to do a reasonable job. So recommend for all but enamel, don't know about all other oil-based paint.

      THIS PAINT AND VARNISH STRIPPING PASTE is ok. The directions say it does work in as little as half an hour, but for best results it must be left on for twenty four hours. I tried it on this basketball backstop and after half an hour it barely did anything but remove some of the loose paint and rust. To put the stripper onto a project, you must use chemically safe gloves or it will destroy them. I was not pleased with this product.

      My partner likes to repaint old furniture and cabinets so we're trying out all types of paint strippers to see which one works best for us and easiest. Wanting a strong product we picked this gel type stripper. It stays right where you brush it. It works really well on every place we tried. Really well. When it says it strips all paint, it really does. Within an hour it's crinkling and oozing and wiping off paint on anything it's placed on. Wood, concrete, it all worked fine. It will even soak into old locks and remove old paint stuck in screw heads, etc. I love the big tub of gel. Very convenient to dip a brush. No worries of spills and tipping it over. Easy to carry with the handle. Highly recommended.

      64 oz. Paint and Varnish Stripping Paste Non-NMP by Citristrip Packaging Contents: Case of four buckets First Impressions: Interesting new, safer product Description: I chose this product because it is biodegradable and doesn't contain some of the harsh chemicals that some others have. This eased my apprehension about using a chemical to strip paint. Preferring the natural approach, I also appreciate the citrus scent and the lack of harsh fumes. I felt comfortable enough leaving it in the closed-up garage overnight and then opening the garage door in the morning to work on it. Usage: For this review, I performed three different tests: Test #1: The test piece was an old cabinet door that was stained and sealed long ago. I set it on a plastic dropcloth outside on the ground and lightly spread a thin layer of the paste on the surface using a flat plastic scraper. (Not sure why they call it paste - it's more like a gel.) After it sat for 30 minutes I could not yet scrape anything away. After one and a half hours I could start to scrape some of the stain away with considerable effort. After 2 and 1/2 hours I could see that some of the surface had bubbled up, and I could then scrape most of the stain away easily. However, the result was spotty and incomplete. Here I learned that the application should be a little thicker and should cover the entire surface well. I also found the outdoor environment to be hard to control and too much debris ended up on the work surface. Test #2: I set up another cabinet door on a plastic drop cloth on the workbench in the garage. I spread an even, liberal layer on the entire surface using the same plastic scraper. It sat for 12 hours, after which most of the surface had bubbled up. I scraped it and everything came off the surface cleanly and evenly. All that was left appeared to be whatever stain had soaked into the wood itself. I used denatured alcohol and steel wool to wash off the remaining waxy paste residue. The result was not down to the bare wood yet, but some minor sanding quickly finished the job. Test #3: On an unsanded area from test #2, I applied a repeat layer of paste. After 24 hours, the paste had not activated and no more was stripped off. The stain soaked into the wood does not come out with the stripper, but it does sand away quickly. For cleanup, I found that the residue that had been cleaned from test #2 was dry and disposable, while the partially unactivated residue from test #1 was still gooey. A complete, even application helps with cleanup and disposal. A brush would probably make it easier to get a complete and even coat applied. Overall Thoughts: Overall, this product saves a ton of sanding time. Sanding alone would take much more time and effort to remove the layers of varnish and stain to get to the bare wood. I feel it is a good value for the price and would recommend it to someone for stripping stained and varnished wood.

      Yep, Citristrip Paint and Varnish Stripping Paste Non-NMP lives up to its promise. We have used Citristrip on wood in the past and it did a great job. This time we used it on antique hinges off a cabinet we rescued from an old house. As an eco-friendly household we really did not want to use a nasty chemical on the hinges and mineral spirits did not touch it. Not wanting to spend money on replacing antique hinges we got Citristrip and crossed our fingers. First there is no obnoxious odors. So yippie right off the bat. We simply threw the hinges in a take-out soup container and poured Citristrip over top. No kidding, we saw it working in like five minutes (see Five-Minutes photo). In no time we wiped off the majority of the paint and used a wire brush for the crevices. The hinges look fabulous and the take-out soup container did not melt. Disposal is easy by just letting it dry up. Highly recommend Citristrip! For the price it is at least worth a shot before resulting to icky chemical-laden strippers.

      Excellent paint & varnish stripper. Firstly I like the fact that I can use it indoors as it does not emit any strong fumes and has a citrus scent. I used it on our wood stairs that previously had two coats of paint. It applies easily and evenly and stays wet. After a few hours the layers of old paint had lifted and could be removed leaving bare wood for refinishing. I have also used it on a piece of furniture with an unknown type of varnish or polyurethane and it also easily removed that finish. It can be used on wood, metal, or masonry. The viscosity allows it to adhere to vertical surfaces so you can strip an entire piece of furniture in one step. In summary, it simply works well.
