Welp, the Peel Away does *work*, per se, but one should most definiltey beware of the serious darkening affect is has on wood (it clearly says that on the packaging and also states that it's for use on woods to be repainted, but I'm reaffirming that here because the stuff most definitely turns your wood a deep walnut color). I think they make a different type for stripping wood bare. At any rate, i think probably because the house we're redoing has no heat and it's quite cold here at this time, the stuff didn't work as well as it normally would have on the interior. Haven't tried it outside yet. Any suggestions / comments / experiences?
