ECSG807 – 17 oz. Aerosol

Paint & Varnish Stripper Aerosol

When you need to strip hard-to-reach surfaces, in crevices and grooves, or intricately carved moldings, Citristrip® Aerosol sprays on easily and evenly.  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. Be observant of torn gloves or other accidental skin contact since no burning or stinging sensation is immediately experienced.

2. Allow can to warm to room temperature then shake vigorously for 2 minutes. Hold can in upright position approximately 10" to 12" from surface. Point arrow on button away from you and depress to apply a generous, orange coating.

3. After 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours), test a small area to see if finish is softened and ready for removal. Remove loosened finish by gently scraping in direction of wood grain with a plastic stripping tool. For stubborn areas, use an abrasive pad sprayed with CITRISTRIP®
Paint & Varnish Stripper. 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.
