I'm not much of a TV person, I believe that it sucks the intelegence out of your brain, but then that is totally irrelevant to this situation.

I've not seen anythingabot this new stripper. I'd suggest going to a retailer and reading the label. It may be worth buying a small amount and trying it in an inconspicous place as a test.

Generaly, a stripper is an Alkyline that breaks down the finish causing the film to release. I only have expirence with two types; Methylene Chloride and Sodium Hydroxide. For Furniture, Methylene Chloride is best, but you should know that it is carcinogenic and requires lots of ventilation to be safe to use. Sodium Hydroxide isn't as fast acting and is "wet", where Methylene isn't. This means that Sodium Hydroxide can darken some woods (Haven't seen one yet that didn't darken). I guess that, so far, we're not much help on the new stuff, but I hope this helps.
