    I havent used Eco Soloutions stripper so can't comment but I've heard its not the best

    or are you talking about eco water based strippers generally?

    If so, Nitromores type stripper removes finishes the best but as I've said repeatedl;y in this thread there are many factors to take into account. The main one being for DIY use in homes on fixtures such as doors and skirtings etc (if they need stripping) then eco strippers are best for such a user...

    The wit and wisdom of joe-90:

    Not exactly an intellectual are you? Do you always find it easier to avoid discussion and go straight to personal abuse? Go back and read what I and Matz have written which clearly contradicts your false assertions quoted above.

    And I suspect you are not much of a workman. Using a water based stripper is easy. I've successfully used two, and I am only an untrained amateur. You paint it on, leave it overnight, and then scrape if off. Can you manage that? I know the instructions are a bit complex, but you can do it, honest. If you have difficulty, just ask, and I'll break the instructions down so you can understand them. :mrgreen:

    Well, my limited test found the Eco Solutions stuff to outperform Nitromors. It spread easier, and worked for longer. Of course I only used it on a few surfaces, which is not a scientific test. There is a Polycell stripper too which I have not tried but which is at the local DIY stores. I was tempted to try Peel Away, if I have the name right, but it is only mail order and if I buy local I avoid shipping costs.

    I think this thread is now becoming somewhat boring, firstly there is as yet not a chemical paint stripper available to my knowledge called Nitromores. However there is a far more superior product available called Nitromors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time now I think to put this one bed.

    I would have thought that the constant bickering and jibber jabber that you and the gobbling Turkey have been driveling would be enough to make anyone confused, for Heavens let it drop.

    Good night

    Don't you think that is rather biased?

    All I did is post honest opinions and joe-90 repeatedly referred to me as a spammer, and derided my polite posts. To be honest I am sick of the obnoxious little turd and his arrogant bullying manner. If he has problems with me posting honest opinions, he should seek help. The same goes to you.

    Believe me she is right, you have. I will leave you both with the last word and hope that Joe does the same then perhaps you pair of beauties will be somewhat lost for words. Yet on saying that there of course may come a time when someone seeks advice with regard to scumble, faux, and perhaps gilt, on those matters I would gladly appeciate your guidance.

    Typical greenspeak. make job as uneconomic as possible and save the planet~~
    Nitromors frowned on because it's mildly carcegenic like your burnt toast.
    Sunbathing is far worse :rolleyes:

    You've lost me there. I have no idea what you mean by greenspeak. If you are saying that because Eco Solutions paint stripper and other similar products take too long for use by professional decorators who in effect charge by the hour, then that's a fair point.

    From your point of view (if you are a pro decorator) it may well be vastly inferior. That may well be joe-90's viewpoint, but he is not exactly William Shakespeare when it comes to the written word, more like David Beckham.

    I'm told that caustic soda in wall paper paste works. Not that I've tried it. Caustic soda is very unpleasant stuff.

    So you dont understand either the meaning or term greenspeak, well that is hardly suprising is it not. Sadly the world is becoming far to full of planet savers and do gooders such as yourself, people of which go through life with blinkered eyes challenging the rights of others and applying condemation toward their views. I see again that you still feel the need to bring Joe into the argument but I will tell you this, although sometimes Joe can be rather sharp he is ten times the man that you will ever be. MR TURKEY

    Christ this is an unpleasant and nasty forum full of rude arrogant posters who cannot cope with someone who expresses an opinion they disagree with.

    I wish I knew what the hell you are on about. Why on earth am I a planet saver or a do gooder? All I did was try various paint strippers and the best I found, out of the three I tried was the Eco Solutions one. Seems that when I report my experience, I end up getting no end of verbal abuse and nonsense. Frankly I think you have a severe personality problem, and I suggest that you seek help, along with your aggressive friend joe-90.

    I think this forum should be renamed as "The place for DIY people to be bullied by arrogant know it all pros". Come here to be verbally abused when all you do is report what you find.

    Dear moderators, well I have had enough of this **** hole. On one recent thread I recall someone basically saying "Do it like this because it creates work for a professional". Mmmm, seem to me that this is not a DIY forum, but a forum where professional **** on amateurs who merely say what they find. I'm off. TheDec and Jor-90, congratulations, you have succeeded in ridding the forum of an 'undesirable' i.e. someone who merely says what they find rather than pandering to the arrogant bastards here. Goodbye.
