No Nonsense Paint & Varnish Stripper
I used this to strip my balustrade and solid stair sides. I noticed that where the type of paint changed (from lead free 'new' paint to 'leaded' old paint) more applications were required. Overall the product worked well.

Bought this to strip several layer of various paint types off a Victorian cast iron fireplace.
Followed the instructions to the letter. After the second application the very top layer only was just beginning to soften slightly, but not enough to scrape off. Left for another hour, still not able to remove the first of many layers of paint.
Decided to try again and used an extra thick coating of stripper, left for a couple of hours, still barely softened the top layer of paint. Had now used a full bottle and not even removed one coat of paint.
This may work on wood, or with some paints as it has some decent reviews, but it would not touch old gloss on metal and I will not be buying it again. Although many times the price the peel off poultice strippers are much more effective.

After trying the high price stuff and not being impressed I decided to give this product a go and and have been very pleased with the results. Followed the instructions and the paint just peeled off to the bare wood with one pass of the shaving hook and scraper.

Works Very Well
So much better than the stuff I've used in the past. Goes on easily, strips off the varnish, much less messy, relatively easy to clean off.
