      Comments about CITRISTRIP Citri-strip Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel (HCG73803T):

      I refinish antiques that have to be refinished because the grime and dark aged finish hides the great looking wood underneath.
      I apply the stripper, and twenty minutes later take it off with clean paper towels. Then use a rinse sold by the same manufacturer.
      Another way to apply the stripper is to use a steel wool pad to lightly rub in the stripper, then go back with steel wool to remove the stripper after twenty minutes.
      After the sniper has been used and the rinse has been used, let the piece dry for a couple of days before applying the new finish.

        Comments about CITRISTRIP Citri-strip Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel (HCG73803T):

        Love this stuff! I use it on everything that need stripping for refinishing, Doors, hinges, fine furniture etc. I can use it indoors, in a closed area in the winter without danger. Put it on, let it sit for about an hour, scrape off. Thicker is better for first coat since it is absorbed, if the first use didn't get all of the prior finish put another thin layer on. DO NOT LET IT SIT TOO LONG! It will dry out and the paint, varnish etc will thicken and restick. It that happens, add more citristrip, wait a little and scrape it off with the finish. Excess application and overspills dry to a white powder that brushes off, unless it spills on a finish. It doesn't work as well on multiple layers of paint as it does on varnishes and laquers, as it only gets one or two layers at a time, for that you're better off with a heat gun, finish with Citristrip. Doesn't work on wood stains at all since they penetrate the wood and this stuff doesn't. Latex gloves or similar are recommended. The Citristrip doesn't hurt my hands but the mixture of Citristrip and removed finish are a sticky mess to clean off.

        Comments about CITRISTRIP Citri-strip Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel (HCG73803T):

        I liked the fact that I could leave it on for a long period, let it work, and go work on another project.
        Also, Im renovating a multi use space and no one has complained about smell or fumes.
        It cleans up well.
        The only complaint is that it is not available in larger sizes.

          First time i tried i let this stuff sit too long and it barely worked. Second time i applied generous portions and tried about an hour later and it was smmmooooothhhh like butter coming off my cabinet door that had latex paint ontop of some airbrushed artwork paint ontop of a varnish or lacquer product. worked great when I USED IT PROPERLY. something tells me earlier post may not have applied enough product or let it sit too long...

          Comments about CITRISTRIP Citri-strip Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel (HCG73803T):

          I have used this product on a wood deck, a painted bed frame, painted brass hinges - used entire bottle - going back to get more today for a new project. I used it to get old stain off my deck before restaining and then scrubbed with a wire pad and it worked great. Used it on bed rails to strip before painting - worked fine with a scraper - needed to take paint off of some hinges - threw them in the bucket and let them soak overnight and the paint washed right off under water the next day. This product was much nicer than harsh strippers I have worked with previously. You do need to use gloves and put on a heavy coat to get old paint off - painting it on with a brush might not be enough product - I used my hands to rub it onto the surfaces so it was heavy enough to really soak into the old paint.
