Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel

Citristrip® Safer Paint & Varnish Stripping Gel Non-NMP is easy to use because it stays wet and active for up to 24 hours allowing stripping of multiple layers in one step.

1. Protect hands with chemical-resistant gloves and eyes with chemical splash goggles.
2. Shake well. Pour into a container and apply with a paint brush.
3. After 30 minutes (up to 24 hours), scrape a small test area to see if finish is ready for removal. For overnight stripping, after applying, cover application area with plastic until ready to scrape. Gently scrape in direction of wood grain with a plastic stripping tool. For stubborn areas, use an abrasive stripping pad dipped into CITRISTRIP®. 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.
