From the Manufacturer
Homes need as much love as the people in them. With Citristrip, you can safely remove layers of yesteryear from your furniture, cabinets, doors, and other painted surfaces. It's biodegradable. And it smells pretty nice too. Paint remover needs to stay wet to work. Citristrip stays wet for 24 hours. So you can cover and strip an entire dining room set in one go. If it's too wintery to strip your furniture outside, or if your furniture is nailed down inside, Citristrip is safe for indoor use. That's because it's made without methylene chloride. Citristrip smells like oranges instead of eye-watering chemicals. And its orange color helps the stripper gel stand out on a surface, so you know where you've applied it.

Applied a few test areas on the tub before bed one evening and let it sit while I slept. The product packaging says 30 minutes to 24 hours for it to work. Woke up about 6 hours later to bubbly white epoxy paint that simply scraped away with minimal effort. Coated the remaining tub surface and was able to get about 98% of the epoxy to remove with ease. Some areas need a little elbow grease (and the instructions note that).
Overall very happy with this product to remove the epoxy paint from my bath tub. Hope to try it on other surfaces soon.
The "Directions for Use" states "Protect hands with chemical resistant gloves . . ", but does not specify that BUTYL RUBBER gloves are the truly safe type; standard latex, rubber, or nitril gloves are NOT SAFE as the stripping solvent WILL easily penetrate these.
As for the "Safe for Indoor Use" claim, the product is safe but ONLY IF ADEQUATE VENTILATION is provided; just opening the windows is NOT sufficient without forced ventilation. I think that the product name, Orange image and the rather pleasant Orange aroma may give the users a false sense of security regarding the hazards associated with the fumes. The product contains a 'bittering agent' to "discourage accidental swallowing", but I would prefer the manufacturer to include an offensive malodorous agent (like a good dose of Skatole . . which will make you think that a dozen pigs/boars have 'done their duty' around your feet) to discourage accidental over exposure to the fumes! (I may sound a bit paranoid, but a friend died a week after cleaning his racing bike gearing and chain with a solvent in a poorly ventilated room.)
Again, great product, BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

Although it worked great on my moulding, I really didn't think about using it on my louvered folding doors from the kitchen and pantry. Had I known how much time I would commit to sanding and trying to get heavy paint brush marks, runs and other imperfections out between the slats, I would've used Citristrip at the very beginning.
For anyone who has tried to sand louvered doors to perfection, it goes without saying that they are a pain. In reading up on what the professionals do, some don't even bother trying to strip them. They'll simply replace them, and then re-paint. That gives you some idea of how time consuming and involved it could get.
These doors have about 4-5 coats of flat and oil based paint on them. Trying to feather the different paints to a smooth paintable surface left me with bubbled oil based paint that refused to blend in with the flat paint. After sanding, endless amounts of dust, extreme soreness, and barely making a dent in the four doors, I decided to try it. Worked like a charm. But I mistakenly used it in 90 degree heat and in full sun. It dried a bit premature and didn't remove all layers of paint. Still, where I applied it thick (before running out), it did a great job. I simply used a non-marring plastic scraping tool. Can't wait for next day delivery from amazon, so I'm off to the big box store to pick up several quarts to finish my doors and use it on other moulding or wood projects. I'll update photos on 04-23-17 after I re-apply it.
