Items You'll Need


  • Klean-Strip KS-3 Premium Stripper Additional Info
  • One quart of liquid will strip 10-20 sq. ft., or about the size of one window.
    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 or home center.
    Chemical-resistant gloves Additional Info
  • Chemical-resistant gloves can withstand exposure to solvents and other chemicals, and are strong enough to resist tears and punctures. Always read and follow the glove manufacturer's instructions prior to using their gloves for your project. Buy several pairs from your local hardware store or home center, and change them as needed.
    Klean-Strip Plastic Stripping Tool
  • Klean-Strip Abrasive Stripping Pad
  • Stripping brush (for working small areas)
  • Wooden orange sticks Additional Info
  • Pointed wooden orange sticks are manicure tools available at drugstores. Longer and easier to grip than a toothpick, the orange stick allows you to scrape stain and varnish out of detailed recesses in mouldings and sculpted areas of wood.
    2" or 3" natural-bristle paint brushes
  • Metal container, clean and empty
    Klean-Strip Paint Stripper After Wash is a solvent that will help you clean up the work area during and after the project.
  • Heavy plastic drop cloths (6 mil recommended)
  • Soft cotton rags for clean-up
  • Klean-Strip Mineral Spirits to clean your brushes
  • A fan to ventilate the work area
  • Tools to remove any hardware from the door (such as a screwdriver)
