How do I apply Goof Off® Semi Paste Pro Stripper for best results?
Apply it thick, and only brush in one direction. This prevents the thickener in the stripper from getting too torn up, so the product doesn’t evaporate away before softening the finish. Give the stripper time to work, at least 15 minutes, before test scraping it. If the finish is ready to come off, scrape it off, moving any damp stripper to the next area to be stripped. Then wipe the stripped surface down with mineral spirits or paint thinner to remove any residue.

Goof Off® Semi Paste Pro Stripper dried on my surface, what should I do?
Reapply the stripper liberally and let it stand 15 to 30 minutes. The stripper will soften up the dried stripper and the stripping project can continue.

Between 65-85 degrees Fahrenheit are best. Any temperature above or below this window and the stripper will work slower.

How should Goof Off® Semi Paste All Purpose Stripper be applied?
