I found this product online from a "flipping old furniture" video. I had to inquire how the host was simply scraping off years of bad paint decisions from an old dresser! But it's a fact. It cuts the work literally in half, in regards to stripping off old varnish/ paint. You just have to be patient enough to allow it to do its work, once applied.
Having to order from Canada isn't the perfect scenario, but they shipped it to me amazingly fast. The US needs to get on board with carrying this. But until then? I am hooked so I'll continue to buy from our neighbors in the North!
