DIRECTIONS FOR USE: 1. Protect hands with chemical-resistant gloves and eyes with chemical splash goggles. 2. Shake well. Pour into a metal or sturdy plastic container and apply a thick coat with a paint brush. 3. After 30 minutes, scrape a small test area to see if finish is ready for removal. Let the stripper do the work. For oil-based coatings allow additional time up to 24 hours. Gently scrape in direction of wood grain with a plastic stripping tool. For stubborn areas, use an abrasive stripping pad dipped into Klean-Strip® Green™ Paint & Varnish Stripper. A toothbrush, toothpick or stripping brush will help remove old finish buried in recesses. 4. You may use water as a wash to remove remaining residue.
