The chart below reflects the recommendations of Down to Earth Products based on our independent testing.

Indoors RemovALL 320 for indoor use.  This product has some very unique qualities including little to no odor!  Our next choice would be RemovALL 220.
Outdoors RemovALL is our favorite brand for outdoor paint removal and also a TV favorite of This Old House. We specifically recommend RemovALL 220 as an all purpose product (brush or spray).
In A Hurry Motsenbocker's remover is our quickest solution for small jobs (can be ready in as little as 15 to 30 minutes).  Ultra Strip, a top-line choice, takes slightly longer (about 2 - 4 hours) in quick mode and also works phenomenally at long haul jobs of 24 hours or more.
Lead Paints Most removers work on Lead Based Paints but only Strip-Tox contains the PreTox 2000 Patented Non-Hazardous Lead Waste Removal System.
Vertical Surfaces Vertical surfaces can be tough.  Most paint removers like to simply run off when applied.  Your best choice for vertical surfaces is Smart Strip because of its Marshmallow Fluff or Shaving Cream like consistency.  This allows the product to stay put better.

It’s important to purchase the proper tools to help you complete and finish the job. For paint removal this usually consists of a drop cloth, chemical resistant gloves, protective eyewear, a putty knife or scraper, sanding sponge, tack cloth, steel wool, chip brush, tape, wiping cloths and possibly a ladder. These items can contribute to a job well done and/or your safety. There is nothing worse than beginning a project only to discover that you needed that contoured or small bevel scrapper that you don’t have, can’t readily find and no longer have the time to run out and get. Let us help you get your project going!

You should never forget to check local regulations that may dictate the removal or disposal of paint or paint waste in your area. Take some time to look at and understand federal, state and local rules specific to your area.
