I prefer to have somebody else do it. I do so little of it but when I do I have used peel away. Nasty work.

Anything with Methylene Chloride. It's toxic and to be avoided, but works better than any other chemical I know.

I tried this stuff on a couple wooden garage doors last week and it worked pretty well.




In general, I agree with CA that the regular MC formula strippers work best. Iíve never had much luck with citri strip type products.
But this stuff is a non- MC formula. It seems slightly less toxic than MC, and actually worked fine. Being able to spray it on helps also.

I've used oven cleaner a bit. It's not ideal in that supposedly it will basically swell the grain up on wood. But I think for paint grade stuff you'd probably be OK. It's dirt cheap, $1 a can at Dollar Tree. I have some methylene chloride, but I've never used it yet. I know the oven cleaner trick from cars, people use it to strip paint when redoing an engine bay. Also people use it on gun stocks as well, but when reading about it there people have had the wood swell/raised grain issue. I think it'd probably be one of the safer things you could use in say, a house with a dozen layers of latex trim paint you want to make nice (well, nicer) again, as far as inhaling it, though it's lye and could still eat your fingers off, so definitely need good gloves when working with it. I've only used it a really limited amount, and never in a "professional" capacity, just on my own hobby stuff, but I have seen it work.

Don't know the brand it was a varnish & marine stripper. Wear gloves and mask it get's hot quick.

Methylene chloride is on a very short list to be banned by the EPA. I think 2020 is the year it is going to be pulled from the market completely.
