I want to strip the paint off of the molding in a room in my house.
There are many coats of paint on the woodwork, but I'm not exactly sure
how many. The house was built in 1820, so there are a lot.
What is the best chemical stripper nowadays, and do all of them require
the use of a respirator like the old ones did (Zip Strip and the like)?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The only respirator that works " partly " is a Chemical respirator, one
good for Chemical attacks, a 3M Chemical will help, That is Cartriges,
not Paper. As in Doctor office. Fresh air is best. Use the old Heavy
Duty Marine, Get you high stuff. Of hire someone. Rember Burning off
Vaporises Lead, you breath it . It makes you bumb - like me.......
I don't know the name, but there was a stripper they (TOH) were using on
the windows in the current bermuda show, where the owner/user said it
smelled like peach yogurt. And Steve said they had used it on a whole
I didn't catch the name, but would like to know what they (TOH) uses.
