Items You'll Need


  • Klean-Strip Strip-X® Stripper Additional Info
  • One quart of liquid will strip 10-20 sq. ft., or about the size of one chair.
    Chemical splash goggles Additional Info
  • Chemical splash goggles must be worn any time there is the chance of a chemical splash or spray. They feature indirect air vents to allow air in while keeping liquids out. Most fit comfortably over prescription glasses, and can be obtained at a hardware store and home center.
    Chemical-resistant gloves Additional Info
  • Most chemical-resistant gloves can withstand exposure to solvents and other chemicals, and are strong enough to resist tears and punctures.

Buy several pairs from your local hardware store and home centers, and change them as needed.
