Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel Tub

CITRISTRIP® Paint & Varnish Stripping Paste is easy to use because it stays wet and active for up to 24 hours allowing stripping of multiple layers in one step. It removes five layers of dried latex paint in under one hour. It contains no methylene chloride or NMP (N-Methylpyrrolidone) and is safe for indoor use.

  1. Protect hands with chemical-resistant gloves and eyes with chemical splash goggles.
  2.  Apply a thick coat with a trowel, paint brush or plastic stripping tool.
  3. After 30 minutes (up to 24 hours), scrape a small test area to see if finish is ready for removal. Gently scrape in direction of wood grain with a plastic stripping tool. For stubborn areas, use an abrasive stripping pad dipped into CITRISTRIP® Paste. A toothbrush, toothpick or stripping brush will help remove old finish buried in recesses.
  4.  Use a paint stripper wash to loosen remaining residue and then mineral spirits to prepare surface for painting. Surface should be completely clean and dry before refinishing.
