      For the past 11 years, Back to Nature has been a manufacturer of safer paint and varnish removers, lead paint abatement products, and exceptional cleaning products. Ready-Strip Plus, is a unique paint and varnish remover capable of removing up to 7 layers in a single application using a stripping tool. The revolutionary Color Change feature signals the time for paint removal. The stripper is applied to the surface and turns off-white or a pale green when the paint or varnish is ready to be removed. Ready-Strip Plus is non-flammable, biodegradable, virtually odorless and can be cleaned up with water. It does not contain methylene chloride, caustic, flammable chemicals or harmful vapors like many traditional strippers. Ready-Strip Plus avoids the uncertainty associated with other strippers that are ineffective if removed too soon, or dry out and do not work if left on too long. Ready-Strip Plus eliminates the guesswork. It is a semi-paste and therefore clings to vertical surfaces.

      • Ready-Strip plus can remove most varieties of household paints and varnishes which are water or oil-based including, latex, stains, enamels, lacquers, clear paints as well as polyurethanes, etc.
      • Can be applied on a multitude of interior and exterior surfaces including wood, plaster, concrete, brick, stone, masonry, marble, metal and fiberglass, etc.
      • Ready-Strip plus will not damage plaster or wood (discolor or raise the grain) or affect any surface it is used on

      I bought this product after I had tried another product and it did nothing. I am refinishing a claw foot tub and needed to strip the paint off that the last owners put on. I first tried aircraft cleaner which barely did anything. I picked this stuff on put a very thick layer. It says it only takes a half an hour which is not true, I let it sit overnight and by the next day when I checked on it all the pain was bubbling right off. So it took way longer than anticipated but at least it did the job requiring little effort on my part which is what I was going for. Overall pretty pleased with it.
