Directions for use

1. Wear chemical-resistant gloves and chemical splash goggles. Shake well and open can slowly to relieve pressure.

2. Pour into a metal container and apply with a paint brush to a small area (up to 9 sq ft). Brush in one direction only. Leave the area and let the stripper do the work.

3. After 15-30 minutes, test scrape a small area to see if finish is ready for removal. Remove loosened finish by gently scraping in direction of wood grain with a plastic stripping tool. A toothbrush, toothpick or stripping brush will help remove old finish buried in recesses. Multiple coats or stubborn finishes may require repeat application.

4. Use a clean abrasive pad dipped in After Wash or Odorless Mineral Spirits to loosen remaining finish and remove any residue. Surface should be completely clean and dry before refinishing.

1. After removing paint, polyurethane, varnish or other finishes, reapply Strip-X® Stripper.

2. After 10 minutes, dip a stripping pad in water and then scrub surface in a circular motion to lift the stain from the wood. Water may raise wood grain, loosen veneer or glue joints -- apply sparingly. A test area is recommended. Use a stripping brush for grooved surfaces.

3. Rinse with a small amount of clean water and wipe dry.

HELPFUL TIPS: Do not use for stripping floors or any place where a flammable remover might be hazardous. Do not mix with any other product. For best results, use in temperatures between 65°F and 85°F and away from strong breeze and hot sun. Protect surrounding areas with a heavy plastic drop cloth. Do not use on linoleum, plastic, rubber, asphalt tile, fiberglass or other synthetics. Use over a small area because health and safety risks will increase dramatically when used over large areas. If applying to a vertical surface, begin at the bottom and work up because vapors can accumulate near the floor.
