It’s a super simple process, but it’s super important to know if you’re working with lead based paint
I usually dump it out of the container onto the top of the furniture. Then I just move the stripper around with the paint brush until it’s everywhere.
Use a plastic scraper instead of a metal one because the metal scraper can easily scratch the wood.
I typically use mineral spirits (poured into a plastic bowl) and some fine steel wool to scrub off anything that is left.
At this point, the freshly stripped wood will be very wet and saturated. I usually go over it a few times with paper towels to wipe up as much liquid as possible.
