Krud Kutter Gloss-Off doesn't degloss, even though the container says it does. I called the company after noticing no gloss reduction, and they said as much. It's a cleaner/degreaser, and nothing more. The two active ingredients in the product are common ingredients for cleaners, so there's nothing in it that would remove gloss--or command a high price. It's not a bad cleaner, but you're paying ten bucks a quart for something that's worth two, or less (check your dollar store). It's benign, with little or no odor, and requires no rinsing, which is an advantage over something like TSP, but in the end, all you have is a degreased surface, still glossy.

This means that you're depending on something other than a surface with some tooth to it to provide adhesion. Fortunately, some primers, such as Zissner Bullseye 123, will adhere well to glossy surfaces. Otherwise, you'd be back in the past, where everybody knew you had better sand glossy surfaces to give the paint something to grip. I sanded anyway, because there's no way the makers of this product are going to come out and redo my cabinets.

**** See update of review at end!!

Although not purchased through amazon, I was disappointed enough with this product that I believe it warranted a review. It was sold to us as a safe product to use in de-glossing old paint finishes to prepare them for a recoat. Unfortunately it did not remove any gloss off the surface and as others mentioned its cleaning ability was average at best. We learnt this the hard way after repainting and having issues with the adhesion of the paint to a previous glossy oil based surface (even when using a primer/undercoat). It was our intention to sand initially but this product looked like the answer to save a lot of mess and time. Perhaps there are certain surfaces that will work better on, but if the surface you intend to use it with is has a high gloss I'd be cautious.

We really liked the fact that it was less toxic than other products, as well as simple to apply, but if it can not even preform it's function then what is the point.

Update Jan 2014: I still had heaps of product left so decided to use it again as we paint furniture as a hobby business. Gloss Off has now become a staple in our prep process. Although it did not work very well the first time we tried it, we have noticed however that it does seem to dissolve or de gloss - to some degree - a previous painted surface. Adhesion of paint is critical for us and there are some surfaces that we only want to sand lightly, so combined with Gloss Off, it will allow for greater adhesion. I would always recommend a light sand first and then a wipe over with Gloss Off to clean and complete the job. This process does not take very long and in some instances we have only used Gloss Off and it has still worked.

I ordered this product to use on kitchen cabinets in a house I'm flipping. The cabinets are really low-end paper over partical board, and couldn't take much sanding. Gloss Off worked great. The paint and primer adhered well, and saved me from costly cabinet replacement.

Used on old bathroom cabinets before painting them. The paint went on perfectly, no issues whatsoever. The cabinets were cheap particleboard type cabinets from the 80's. This product saved lots of time and hassle trying to sand these down. We just wiped them with this product and 10 minutes later we were painting. Highly recommended.

I bought a gallon of this product at a local paint store to de-gloss an interior wall before converting it to flat paint. No reduction in shine or feel after a very thorough application and wipe down per the instructions. I will request a refund and return the unused product.

Not much to say here other than it does not de-gloss. It cleans, but sanding is still necessary after this product. All in all this was a wasted purchase.

Made re_purposing an old end table a breeze. Just rub this on, wait 10 minutes and paint, just like it says. My table looks like I just bought it, not a bad paint job. Everyone was impressed when I said I painted it. No sanding, no mess.

I used this on varnished kitchen cabinets and drawers. It works as advertised, I painted everything white, and the paint didn't come off. I did very little sanding.
