SOY-Gel™ — effective, effortless, and odorless coating removal—is the result of Franmar Chemical’s 25-year investment in developing effective, economical and safe cleaning solutions from soybeans and natural elements. Stripping the old finish or paint is a job no one likes, and it is usually done outside in old clothes—with heavy gloves. The paint removers of a generation ago worked but weren’t very friendly or safe. SOY-Gel™ is different. Why? It is 100% biodegradable, has no known health hazards, is virtually odorless, and best of all, it works. You should still wear the old clothes and gloves, but you can put the respirator away. BLUE BEAR Paint and Urethane Stripper is a tried and true stripper, used by consumers for over two decades. This consumer trusted remover effectively removes multiple layers of paint, varnish, enamel, urethane, other single-component coatings, and lead based paint*. Made with soybeans, Paint and Urethane Stripper is a safe, low odor, non-caustic, green coating remover for any DIY project. •Gel formula for easy application •Removes Multiple Layers with ONE Application •Made with 100% American-Grown Soybeans

Based on all the positive reviews, I thought Soy-Gel would be a panacea. Far from it. My floor is worse off than before. I've attached a picture showing the floor in my bathroom. The lower half is the painted area, and the upper half shows the result after using Soy-Gel (left overnight), followed by two hours of scraping, sanding, cleaning with a steam mop, and wiping with cleaners and paper towels. The cleaning pad is now ruined because it soaked up a bunch of paint.
But worst part is that now my bathroom floor has damp paint on it, and so anyone who steps on it will get paint on his feet. No matter how much I wipe with paper towels, it won't get dry. What a disaster!
If you are brave enough to try this stuff, make sure you buy only the smallest bottle and test it on a very small area (one square foot maximum) that's easy to wash clean. If it doesn't completely remove all the paint in one wipe, then you know it's not going to work for the rest of your floor.
Rockler's Soy-Gel instructional video on YouTube recommended trying out a test spot first to figure out how long you needed to leave it sitting. I checked after the first 15 minutes, then 30. It didn't look any different. I waited an hour, two hours - still nothing except a tiny bit of rippling at a couple of edges where the finish had been previously damaged. I was starting to feel disappointed, thinking it wasn't working.
I went away for another hour and when I came back, the entire test spot finish had bubbled up right off the surface of the tub. Like the paint stripping fairies had been through. It has been taking between 3-12 hours to get through the finish, depending on the thickness of the finish in each area. (Mostly 3-4, but the top edge of the tub took more like 10-12.)
I read several of the low ratings, out of curiosity. I think maybe the people who thought it didn't work at all might have been trying too soon. It's not a subtle change. It's not ready, and then suddenly it is. You do have to slather it on pretty thickly - like peanut butter, not paint.
Low odor. Yes, you can smell it, but it's nearly un-smellable for a paint stripper - it's not gassing me out of the house and the tub is in the bathroom next to the bedroom. Nothing at all like typical solvent-based strippers. For the folks who thought it smelled really bad, I'm not sure what they are comparing it to. It's way less stinky than the bleach we used to clean the shower downstairs.
It does make odd paint+gel boogers, but you get some version of paint slime with any stripper, and at least it's not flammable HazMat. I'm scraping the paint boogers into a cardboard box while I'm doing the stripping.
When I'm done with the tub, I'm going to try this on some of the paint-laden ceiling diffusers Husband already tried chemical paint stripper on, unsuccessfully. He got 3 or 4 layers off in a several-hour soaking of nasty, stinky solvent, then got stuck at a layer of lavender paint. Me and my gel goop are up next.
1. It clings to vertical surfaces like a champ (I am stripping paint from molding)
2. It stays wet for hours without plastic - not that I wouldn't add plastic if I needed to, but I left it for more than six hours to allowed it to work completely through what I knew had to be several layers of paint (my home is a 1910 bungalow).
3. It starts to work quickly. Within the first 10 minutes, I could see that it was working.
4. It can strip through multiple layers of paint in one thick application if left alone, say overnight or all day, to do the work (unlike the citrus-based product I used on a built in shelf. I literally used a gallon of that stuff and it still took forever to get through one layer at a time and that was only if I left it on overnight and covered it in plastic. I still had to scrape, reapply, wait, scrape, reapply, wait... you get the picture)
