Total waste on money
Do yourself a favor and try something other than this. Followed instructions. Brushed on, wrapped in plastic, and came back 30 minutes later. Did this twice before I gave up.

Set times will vary, Max Strip will not damage the substrate being stripped so leave the treated surface
(as per instructions) for as long as needed for coating to soften for removal. Also please note Max Strip products are temperature sensitive and work best above 50°F. EZStrip
    Wow, Great Paint Remover
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Let me tell you, this paint remover is awesome. I used it to remove paint run over on my wooden ledge in my kitchen that is already pre-stained. I didn't even leave it on as long as recommend on the bottle, and like magic it took the paint off and the stain was fine! I love this stuff.

      I like the gel formula of Max Strip paint and varnish remover. It was very easy to apply it with a paint brush. I followed the directions by putting on the first coat, covering with plastic and 10 minutes later, I applied a 2nd coat and recovered with plastic. After waiting a half an hour, I started scraping the paint. You do have to be certain that all areas having stripper are covered completely with plastic so the stripper does not dry out. The paint in the areas that remained wet with stripper were very easy to remove. This stripper is a bit time consuming, but it does work nicely. The water clean up is a definite plus! I do recommend this product, but it is time consuming.

      I used this stripper to take off black paint from a 60+ year old small, side table. In one of my photos, I show the items I gathered ahead of beginning the stripping process. I also used a bucket of water and paper towels. I followed the directions on the stripper container. I did this project outside on our gravel driveway. I thickly brushed on the stripper, waited 10 minutes, scraped it off, applied a second coat, waited 10 minutes, scraped that off and then used a final stripper pad all over the table. Lastly, I wiped the entire table with paper towels. I cleaned all tools with water. I’m very happy with the performance of this stripper.

      This product is truly amazing. I wanted to sand a cupboard in. Y bathroom but did not want all the dust since I’m pregnant so I used this product. I must say it did the job well even though the cupboard has been getting moist for the past 15 years by being in the bathroom. It took the old stain off very easily and made it so much easier for me. The product is easy to use and doesn’t not require to much labor as if you had to sand it.

      I was pretty disappointed in this paint stripper. I decided to test it out on a piece of plywood that I had painted and then covered with a polyurethane. I. had hoped to be able to reuse this piece of plywood by stripping the finish off of it, but I wasn't successful. I put a fairly liberal coat of it on one corner of the plywood and covered it with freezer paper, which has a plastic coating. I checked it after an hour and I wasn't seeing much results at all, so I applied more and replaced the freezer paper. Another hour or two later and I was barely able to scrape much more off. I gave it an even greater coat and replaced the freezer paper and decided to let it sit overnight. Just did not seem to work at all on this piece. This might be a better review for the Minwax polyurethane that I applied over the paint. I will say it is low odor, though, which is an improvement over some other paint strippers I've used.

      Please note we recommend covering treated surface with plastic only. Other products used to cover treated surface for required set time will not provide the best performance. EZStrip

      I used Max Strip to strip two coats of paint from an old utility cart. Max Strip is easy to apply and did not have a strong smell, but I did work outdoors. Since the product is a gel, it seemed to stay in place on a flat surface, but it does run off of vertical surfaces. The first application did a good job of removing the top layer of paint, but did not seem to have an impact on the bottom (original) layer. The second application removed the bottom layer of paint with ease. I was impressed with Max Strip because after the gel had removed all of the paint in one area I simply moved it to another area and it continued to work. I was impressed with how well Max Strip removed the original paint and how clean the metal was after washing it with water. I would recommend Max Strip to anyone who needs a good paint and varnish stripper.

      While it says paint and varnish, it may do better with a varnish. Oil based would not be the easiest to remove with this. Although it says gel, it's not. After a good deal of shaking it started to jell a little, but certainly not as one would think. It did take several applications, but it did remove the latex paint, not as easily with the oil based. Several repeat applications and waiting to scratch the surface.

      Had some garden tools with layers of varnish. This stripper lived up to it's name and did a great job of removing the varnish. It went on easy and the quart was enough to do both long handles of shovel and rake. The directions were easy to follow and clean up was easy also - water clean up. Only had some light sanding to smooth out grain and they were ready for new varnish. Good product.

      For a non-toxic stripper, this works pretty well. Before starting my real project, I tried it on an old luan door I recently replaced. The door has 2 coats of interior latex paint and a couple of coats of some spray enamel. The pictures show the door prior to application, and at various stages after. The final picture includes a second coat of stripper for the ” 1-hour” strip. I could have been a little more liberal with the application which I believe would have produced better results. The instructions state leaving it on overnight may be necessary. There are no strong fumes and no warning to wear gloves while using. Probably my best advice is to be patient – it will work.
