5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Stripper That's Easy To Use!, March 7, 2010
This review is from: Citri-Strip QCG73801T Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel, 1-Quart (Tools & Home Improvement)
I am so excited about this product. I found a great kitchen set of tall ladder back chairs that had a horrible paint job. I decided to try this stripping gel and am happy I did! For my chairs (the wood grain has some ridges)... I made sure I also bought a scraper, although the directions say to use a plastic one, I used a metal without any issues. I also bought a cheap 3-piece brass wire brush set from a local store. The only other thing you need to get started is CHEMICAL RESISTANT gloves... I grabbed a cheap pair of gloves and soon realized how fast it takes for the chemical to eat through (but my hands weren't injured at all). For my chairs I kept the gel on for an hour and only needed one coat.

Another thing... if you're thinking about purchasing this... you may also want to look at Citri-Strip Paint Stripper After Wash to help clean the wood without water (which can damage your wood).

What happens if skin comes into contact with the solution? I used nitrile gloves and the chemical soaked through to the inside of the gloves. The gloves themselves showed no damage.

Both the gel and the after wash are water-based, so either way you used water on your wood. In other words, care is required with the gel after-wash as well...they will raise wood grain just like pure water if overused.
