Product Description

Easily remove multiple layers of paint, urethane, acrylic, epoxy or enamel without the back-breaking work of sanding and chiseling - and without the odor of other furniture strippers! Made with 100% American-grown soybeans, SOY-Gel is a great natural alternative to harsh chemical strippers. Once applied, it starts to lift the coatings in minutes. Now available in a five-gallon size for up to 1,000 square feet of coverage. One quart gives you up to 50 square feet of coverage - three times the coverage of most traditional strippers. After the finish has lifted, use a Carbide Scraper to remove the bulk of the softened finish. For final cleanup after stripping, we recommend using Emerge All-Purpose Cleaner for best results. Indoors or outdoors, you can be guaranteed a safe and easy restoration. Ideal for lead-based paint removal. The lead becomes encapsulated in the gel, preventing airborne particles and allowing for safe disposal. Does not contain methylene chloride. Cleans up easily with water. Safe to use on wood, brick, stone, metal, plaster, concrete and many other surfaces. Do not use on plastic, PVC or rubber.

I have just used this gel to strip a painted brick fireplace. Three layers of paint bubbled off and practically melted away. Just lift the paint off with a scraper (no real effort required) and remove the softened paint from the grout with a wire brush.

It is almost completely odourless and I was thrilled to be able to use such a safe and EFFECTIVE product with a two year old around. I've been using Amazon for years but this is the first review I've been moved to write because I just can't get over how good this was.

Soy-gel is the best low-toxicity paint stripper I have been able to find. It blows Citristrip away, easily lifting off multiple layers of paint. It also removes difficult-to-remove paints (e.g. milk-based). It comes very close to, and perhaps even equals, the effectiveness of dangerous methylene chloride strippers like Rock Miracle and Easy-Strip.

The product stays wet for a long time, increasing its

effectiveness.

It does cost more than twice what the very toxic strippers do, but it is worth it for the health benefits. You can leave it working in your house and not worry about being gassed to death while you go about other things.

I bought a quart of this product to make sure it worked before ordering a gallon, as it is not cheap. But if you are unwilling to use toxic strippers, as I am, then it is worth every penny. It is beautifully effective on wood, and the Franmar website states it is safe for plaster. As my husband and I are stripping many layers of (probably) lead-based paint off old lumpy rough plaster, we would never have accomplished the task without this stripper.

I have found it is most effective to use a relatively thin layer of gel (even on thick layers of paint) and wait at least one day, maybe two (not covered with plastic film) until the surface is no longer gooey or wet. The paint is now very pliable but dryish and will peel away from the underlying surface in nice strips

I have never used anything else, so I can't compare. So I can't give my review 5 stars because I have hopes there is something better out there! What I would like to have tried was the Klean Strip premium with color change because a friend tells me it dries crusty and can be swept up easily - but local orange big box store only had it in a gallon container, and I didn't need that much. So I stuck with the soy gel, which is what I started with.

I stripped one layer of white latex paint of a previously (like, for 80+ years) unpainted bannister/handrail/etc in my stairway. I highly suspect the previous owner was told by the realtor to "brighten it up" before selling and holy cow I'd like to choke both of them. It looked ok but he didn't do it right so the paint was falling off in sections. We had to either strip and repaint or strip and stain. Having confirmed with the previous previous owner that this staircase had never been painted, we decided to strip and stain.

This was easily the most distasteful job I have ever undertaken in my life.

This stuff is MESSY. I can't say how it compares to other strippers but since it has a long drying time you end up with what I call "soy gel boogers" all over the place. The more stripper you use, the more mess. It cleans up with water, and I was initially using a bucket of water and a plastic scrubby - but this also makes a mess, with drips of water everywhere and flying paint boogers. Near the end of my stripping oddesy, I learned that an old sock soaked with denatured alcohol makes a much better cleaner-upper.

Other things I learned on this journey -

Work from the top down - otherwise you'll end up with goo stuck to part you already finished.

I used the product on an antique chest that had been painted with several layers of paint. The newer paint on top came off easily. The very old paint underneath, however, was a different story. I called the manufacturer to get help and they told me the old paint is indeed harder to get off. They advised me to leave the product on longer, up to 24 hours. That helped quite a lot and I was able to get most of the paint off, but I will still have to sand what is left. If you are working with old paint, don't be afraid to let the gel sit for a while. As long it stays wet, it is still working. I wish I had known this earlier, I wouldn't have wasted as much product (and money) as I did by removing it too early.

This worked pretty well. I had to use several coats, it doesn't work with one coat only as in their description, so the quart definately doesn't go far. It has NO bad smell, doesn't BURN bare skin so that is great. It is expensive, and only removes layers after several applications, but it does work eventually. You do have to watch and check when to remove the layers, it depends on outside temp and number of layers. I waited 12 hours the first application, but it had already dried, and was difficult to remove, I had to reapply more, so watch and check every hour or so. It does remove easily when it is still wet.

I work for an antique hardware store in NY state, and we do use this product on just about everything that we get in that needs to be stripped. Now people do need to take what the company says with a grain of salt about about it being "perfectly safe". Obviously being that its a paint stripper you aren't going to want to drink it, and I don't know that a pregnant wife would want to be using it for any extended period of time, but compared to the alternative of the toxic paint strippers that are out there this is a reasonable alternative. It's more expensive, but as long as you use it right it will get the job done. Many of the reviews that say that the product works better the longer you let it sit are correct. Usually we will let parts sit overnight for starters and then continue from there. We have used this product on paints manufactured anywhere from 1800's to modern paints and the product does work on them all eventually. As a general rule of thumb the older the paint is the longer you are going to need to let it sit. We did start using gloves with this product however most of the gloves you will get will break down over time while using the soy gel. So I just use it bare hands now. Trust me when I say we go through gallons of this stuff a week using it on old hardware and furniture and then worst that its done to my skin was that prolonged exposure does tend to dry your skin a little, but a quick hand was and some lotion afterwards and you're good to go again. Basically if people take anything from the review it would be this, if you have something that needs to be stripped, there isn't ever going to be an easy "miracle" fix. This stuff works, but takes time and its going to cost you more in the long run per ounce of product.Read more ›
