Stripping Cabinets

There are many stripping products on the market and I would follow Henry in MIs advice in an earlier post. Go to several independent paint stores, tell them what you need to do and get their advice. If a couple of them tell you the same thing, they're probably right. Years ago I always used products containing methyl chloride and a bunch of other nasty stuff; and then used a lacquer thinner wash. It works great and it is fast, but I think that there are less toxic methods on the market today and I would strongly suggest that you go for one of them. Be sure to spend the time and a little money on plastic, tape, and paper to protect your floors, appliances, and counter tops. The bottom line is to not get the stripper on anything you're not going to replace or refinish.
Good Luck!
