1. Wear chemical-resistant gloves and chemical splash goggles. 2. Shake can. Pour stripper into a metal container & apply with a brush. 3. Apply a liberal coat of stripper with as little brushing as possible. A film forms over the stripper to stop evaporation. Brushing breaks the film and causes evaporation and drying. Keep the stripper wet even if more applications are necessary, until the BOTTOM coat of paint or finish is ready to be removed. Check for dry spots and reapply stripper to those areas. 4. Give the stripper time to work. Many coats of old paint may require up to 30 minutes before removal. 5. Using a putty knife or plastic scraper, remove the paint and deposit in a waste container. Apply another coat of stripper to facilitate the final clean up. 6. Scrub the surface clean with coarse steel wool & water. 7. To remove pigmented wood stain, leave the mixture of stripper & water on the wood. When removing brown stain, watermarks or weather stains, scrub the surface with water & wet coarse steel wool. While the wood is wet, brush on a coat of white vinegar. To remove red stain, use full strength bleach instead of vinegar. After using the vinegar or bleach, wash surface clean with wet cloth. Use bleach or vinegar only when water washing. 8. If you like the color of the wood & do not wish to pull the stain, do not use water. Instead, wash the surface clean with paint thinner. Allow wood to dry overnight before sanding or refinishing.
HELPFUL TIPS: Do not use on rubber, asphalt, tile, linoleum, plastic, gel coat or other synthetics. Always test on an inconspicuous area for compatibility before using.
