How to Remove Wood Finishes with Citristrip and Plastic Wrap
“When I refinish a piece and want to re-stain the top I either use my sander or use this Citristrip/Saran Wrap trick. I use the CS/SW trick when there are layers and layers of paint or delicate creases & details. The Citristrip gets in the crevices and does the job. The Saran Wrap is Citristrip’s side kick! It keeps the heat in and makes the Citristrip work more effectively.”
My mom has always enjoyed refurbishing antiques and I remember once in my teenage years she required me to sand and strip an old rocking chair she wanted to redo. The rocking chair was beautiful with ornate spindles, but oh my word, those were a pain to strip! I wish I had known this easy Citristrip and plastic wrap trick back then, it would have made my job so much easier. So the next time you want to strip the finish off a wood piece, remember this simple trick. It will save you lots of effort.
