Hi, Nancy. I sure agree that about anything is better than sanding, dry scraping or a heat gun on lead based paint. What does your product do that is a benefit over current, non-methyl chloride based strippers? I use N-methly pyrrodone based strippers or lye based strippers exclusively. I am pretty happy with these and the product that I chose depends on the total coating thickness, i.e. pyrrodone for up to about 4 coats of paint and lye for more than that. Seems like they all tie up the lead in the gunk about the same.
