Jobe, I have tried many strippers and have been more than pleased with Citristrip. Though slower than many, it works and is a lot safer and more pleasant to use. The methyl clorides seem to be too dangerous to have around or to use often. But with any of them, be sure to follow the manufacturers directions. The 24 hour strippers with the paper overlays are great too, but expensive except for that special job like 25 coats of paint over 150 year old mouldings.
