Works great but needs time

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Problem Solver Deck & Siding Wood Stripper (07-8004):

Used this on my 29 yr old cedar garage door to remove stain/varnish. After 15 minutes not much action; it took about 4 hours to work then the old stain/varnish came off easily with a power washer. Very important to apply starting at the bottom and working your way to the top of a vertical surface. I have a couple small spots that I need to reapply then moving on to the wood brightener. Very pleased - this saved a beautiful wood garage door. Very reasonable $ compared to other products :)

Cabot stripper works great! ...BUT...

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Problem Solver Deck & Siding Wood Stripper (07-8004):

Purchased a home last year with a very nice custom deck western red cedar... Though it was looking a little bleak, the deck itself was well sealed but needed reviving and well just some more pop of color... While the Oil stripper does work very well the way it is I found out fast that the coverage was somewhat poor... If you can imagine trying to push corn-syrup on a 40 degree day through a squirt gun that is about the consistency when pushed through a decent hand pump sprayer... While this may be fine for some, I found that when you have 200+ spindles to strip it become very time consuming and found that I was wasting more product than actually using it... There had to be an answer somewhere... So I called Cabot direct and asked them "why can't this water soluble stripper be cut 1:1 with water to have better spraying coverage when it plainly states it's solvent base is WATER"... First I got a general Q&A operator for residential support... they could not explain why, so he transferred me to the contractor dept and again they also had no explanation as to why you could not so they transferred me to their technical dept to filed the question... and so yada yada yada... and in the end it boiled down to this... YES YOU CAN DILUTE THIS PRODUCT 1:1 EASILY! ... The only con is while it dilutes the effectiveness to a degree BUT if you keep your project well misted you can easily cover a far larger area (VS: the 1 gallon specifies) easily and it works as well as the product not being cut 1:1 with water... the PRO's? If you have a bazillion spindles to do it not like trying to push tooth paste through a tube onto each spindle, you can also pus it out of the sprayer much easier as well as cover many more spindles with less spraying/coverage effort and then simply mist them LIGHTLY to prevent the product from drying, Working by myself I was easily able to lengthen the stripping effectiveness to well beyond the instructed 15-30 ins working time to easily well over 1 hour... And once you begin power washing it removes everything in the exact same manner as just as if you were not cutting the product 1:1... This is an awesome product the way it stand BUT, rather than big giant letter that state "DO NOT DILUTE WITH WATER" in bold face type, they should state facts for certain situations... Will I use this again? YES! ...Would I recommend this to a friend? YES!
