            Low quality; EXPENSIVE price
            Purchased the spray for $18.99 with hope that it would remove laytex paint ignorantly painted over stained cabinets in a rental house. When I popped the end cap, so popped the nozzle. Had to find it. Luckily, it didn't roll under my workstation.The spray does apply well, even and no noticeable splattering. Waiting 20 minutes, the stripper foamed litely. Afterwards, I took a coarse sponge to wipe the paint off of the cabinet faces. Out of 3, only a quarter of 1 layer stripped. Not worth the cost.
            Response from KleanStripExpertMar 14, 2023
            The most effective ingredient for removing paint which was used for over 50 years (methylene chloride) was banned by the EPA in 2018 and can no longer be included in paint strippers, which is why current paint stripper products work at a slower rate than previously. The remover may need a little help by scratching the surface with some coarse sandpaper to give the remover some spots to attack, then covering the remover with a heavy plastic drop cloth or other plastic sheeting (even a trash bag will help). Let the remover have plenty of time to work. If the stripper is drying or getting gummy before it works, you may not be applying a thick enough layer of stripper. In order to really soften and liquify a paint, the remover will need to be several times thicker than the paint film, so put on a thick layer.

              Great product. Easy to use.

              Great stripper but you Pay to play
              Great stripper if you have to use one but it is overpriced everywhere. It works quickly do not wait 15 mins or you will be starting all over. I needed something to remove what I truly believe was 60 years of paint, and kleen stripper is doing the job. 2 gallons for all walls and 2 doors, doors and trim, trim of 2 windows, base boards and radiator covers. Wear protective gloves, and long sleeves and pants to avoid contact with skin. I think it is very expensive product but it works, I have tried others that basically turned colors, then you remove the paint they didnnt work as well. I gave 4 stars because of the price.

              Use it or lose it!!!
              I got 4 cans of this on April 3, 2019 and didn't use as much as I expected, so I put the remainder in my basement. I just went down to my basement on an unrelated matter, and found that my one open can and the 2 remaining UNOPENED cans had leaked everywhere causing a huge mess. My basement is relatively dry and has good air circulation, and nothing else that is kept down there has ever shown any sign of moisture related problems (rust, mold, mildew, etc.) In my opinion, this should never have happened in the course of only 2 years. My suggestion to the company would be to start using plastic instead of metal, especially considering how caustic the substance is. I originally gave this product high marks, but after this, I had no choice but to change it!

                Easy to apply, using on n coated porcelain tub, used 2 storage coats. Instructions said 45 minutes, but you need to let it sit and work fir at least 2 hours on each coat. Make sure the room is well ventilated also, but in the end, it did the job very well. Pulled multiple coats off my bathtub

                I used this to strip old paint off a white painted wooden dresser that had been mine as a child. My daughter had painted the top black and sealed it with Modge Podge while in her middle school goth stage years ago, and decided, now that she's an adult, she wanted to restore it to its white color. It took eight coats of paint stripper, but it all came off. The newly restored dresser looks great! It's very toxic stuff, so you have use protective gear: good ventilation, goggles, mask, gloves, old clothes or coveralls.

                Better than expected
                Yes this tin is small and I purchased it to see if it would work before getting the larger one. To my surprise I didn’t need the big one as it will cover a large area even with thick, multiple coats. I really needed something to take 70 years worth of layers of paint from an outdoor metal trap door. In the 15 minutes it did start to take off some paint but for the areas with multiple layers I left it at least 45mins or more and it worked. Some really tough spots needed a second coat and it was great. Very happy with the results.
