Hi, Char. If you will search this board, you will find the site and address for the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. They are the only ones that still actually make milk paint in the country. (Other companies make milk paint colors, but it is not true milk paint) Their site has the info including a source for a stripper that will work. I don't suggest sand wood when stripping any more than you have to. This takes away from the character and patina of the piece. This is particularly true with milk paint because of the way that it goes down into the wood rather than just laying on top. Too much sanding destroys the character and detail of a piece as well as causes you future problems at joints when you refinish.

Good luck
