You were talking "somewhere else" about using oven cleaner as a paint remover. I know this probably isn't the best idea, but do you think I could do it indoors and scrape it off. The table I want to strip 5000 coats of paint off of (ok, maybe that's a little exaggeration) is kind of hard to get out of the door. So I was thinking I could do it and just open all the doors and windows. What do you think?
Thank you very much. I am off to the grocery store where, for the first time in 19 years, I will buy oven cleaner! I'm sure that grosses some people out but it just has never been my priority. The oven is not real dirty 'cause I don'tlike to cook either!
I personally wouldn't do it indoors because a lot of chemicals bother me, and I'm sure oven cleaner smell would be one of them, also my cats would have to be locked up for the duration or the moronic darlings would jump on it (every time we paint they end up in it!).
However, if there is no other option just make sure you do like Karen said and have lots of ventilation.
I don't think they do on this one. It's an old farm table. But it came in the door so it will have to go out. I was thinking I couldn't do it by myself, but I 've decided to do this weekend instead of waiting until next week and there will be someone home to help me. I just feel better doing it this way. Then maybe I can scrape all the gunk onto a tarp or something and take it to the right place at the dump.
What I plan to do once it's worked for awhile is just blast it off with the hose. That was what the original poster said she had done. Plan to put my stuff out in the far driveway where it can kill the weeds while it's at it!
This is not a paint remover for fine furniture but it supposedly does remove paint.
IT WORKED! Dh (grumbling the whole time, I might add) helped me take the table out into the side yard. I sprayed the heck out of it with Easy Off and a few minutes later hosed it down. It took 4 cans because there were 5 thick layers of paint there (2 greens, a yellow, a red and a white.) It is now where I can sand it down and guess what! Paint it again. I guess you could sand a little more to get all the little bits off and then just seal the wood, but I am going to paint it white and kind of distress it. They key is to shake it well and let it sit 15 minutes. I didn't wear gloves and now my finger tips are a little sore, almost like I burned them but that is the only problem. Probably should have worn the stupid gloves. "Safety first" as they say over and over again on HGTV. But it worked!
