gasoline as Paint Stripper - Page 2

post #11 of 43
I've used gas to get wood stain off my hands, and paint thinner... It'd work.

Just get paint stripper but do not be under the assumption is less dangerous than gas. Make sure to wear eye goggles and thick rubber gloves.
Totally agree. I think paint stripper is way worse. I had to work with it before and the fumes were way too strong. I only used a dust mask, but still some nasty stuff. It also burns extremely bad if any gets on your skin.

Acetone can be found where paint is sold usually, or just be a man and use some nail polish remover.

Muriatic Acid is excellent (but crazy dangerous). You can buy it in some building stores (I got it at Canadian Tire).

It's typically used to clesn brick on the sides of houses.

It's incredibly caustic, incredibly dangerous and will eat through anything that isn't thick plastic, stone or metal.

I used it on the front steps of my house. I had spilled some white enamel paint (painting the trim around my doors). I poured on some Muriatic Acid and ran like hell (you are supposed to dilute it with water but I went pure). It pulled enamel paint off my stonework in about 40 seconds.

Use with caution!!

I just used paint stripper on my cars valvecover.

That is a condensed can of pissed off. Went through my gloves, and wouldn't wash off my hands. Like napalm, seriously.

Yes this is what I mean haha. It burns like fire, but unlike if your skins on fire when you wash it off it still burns like fire. It eat those thick yellow gloves for breakfast and laughs at you when you manage to fling some onto your skin. I wore a paintball mask, dust mask, yellow gloves etc when I stripped my bike, and I still manged to get some lovely burning yellow dots on my skin.

I have cleaned off old black stains and really tough baked on stuff with gasoline, BUT. It should only be used as a cleaner and then only as a last resort.

Acetone or the same stuff that finger nail paint remover works the best. And the spray on stuff is just Wicked. I mean the spray paint remover from the auto parts place.

Ohh if you do clean with Gasoline go back behind yourself with some dish washing liquid and water.
