This deglosser does the job. I've refinished several kitchens with wood stained cabinets and a lacquer finish. I applied this product to both sides of the cabinet doors, drawers and face frames following the directions. It's honestly hard to tell if it's working because there's still a sheen on the wood after applying but the proof is in the results. The cabinet doors and drawers painted up beautifully! Smooth, even coverage. Had I not used this deglosser I wouldn't have the results I did. Easy to apply. No strong smells. Safe to use with your hands. Does the job. Attached is a picture of the kitchen cabinets I recently refinished using this deglosser. The original finish was that classic orange peel. Before and after included.
Pros: Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Dries Quickly
I obtained this product to prepare a door and trim that I wanted to repaint. The door had been painted or varnished with an ugly brown color and it had a glossy surface, so the previous owners might have used a high-gloss paint or varnished it. Anyway, I didn't want to go through the trouble of sanding everything, so I used this product, and indeed "brown stuff" came off my door (see pictures) and you can definitely tell the surface got less glossy. I used the product per the instructions, pouring a bit of it on a lint-free cloth and applying it in circular motions to my door and trim. I let it dry after the first application, and then did the process again with a clean cloth and still more brown stuff came off, albeit less so than the first time. The next day, I went ahead and started painting the door and trim and the paint I used (a high-gloss oil-based paint) adhered beautifully and covered well. I'm not sure if I would've gotten the same result had I not used this Gloss-Off product. The product does indicate that it's an eye and skin irritant. Fortunately, I didn't get any in my eyes, but I did get some on my hands as did not have work gloves on, however, I had no problem with my skin getting irritated from this product.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight
