There is no straight answer as to which is the best paint stripping product. This is because paints and varnishes are made to different formulations by the various manufacturers and where one paint stripper works well on one type of paint, it might not perform as well on another. For this we recommend buying a sample or the smallest tin size first to test the effectiveness of the stripper on the paint or varnish to be removed.
Products that have repeat positive feed back are Paint Panther Paint and Varnish Remover, PeelAway 1 and PeelAway 7 Paint Removers. Paint panther is more suited to normal day to day paint stripping whereas the PeelAway products are great for removing and restoring objects that originally had a highly decorated surface that has been infilled by paint over the years. The PeelAway paint removal system is especially useful for removing paint from ornate and highly detailed fireplaces, furniture, plaster coving, cornices and ceiling roses.
