Step 1: Choose a standard paint stripper
Paint or stain and topcoat can be removed with most methylene chloride-based strippers, such as:
- Savogran SuperStrip™
- Dad's Easy Stripper™
- 3-M Safest Strip®
NOTE: If selecting other products to strip the stain, make sure to read the warning against use on fiberglass.
Step 2: Apply stripper to doorlite frames first
Remove the stripper within 2-3 minutes. Follow the paint stripper manufacturer's directions and cautions for use of the paint stripper. Use a clean rag to apply the stripper.
Step 3: Apply stripper to the door
Work on small areas at a time. Follow the pain stripper manufacturer's directions and cautions for correct use of the paint stripper.
Step 4: Wash off remaining stripper
After the stain or paint has been removed, scrub the door with an all-purpose cleaner to completely remove any stripper residue. Rinse well and wipe dry.
Make sure door is completely clean and dry before refinishing.
