Another Fan of Peel Away

Jenni at Thirteen Eleven just named Peel Away paint stripper as her new BFF.  I know where she’s coming from.  I also had a fantastic experience using Peel Away to remove paint from my brick fireplace.

There are several formulations of Peel Away for different applications.  If you decide to give it a try–which I recommend– make sure you read carefully and get the formula that fits your needs.

Here is Jenni’s post: Peel Away is My New BFF

And here are some posts from my fireplace project with Peel Away:

Here in Minneapolis, I have found Peel Away at Sherwin Williams and Menards stores.  Both places run store-wide coupons or sales from time to time which I’ve found useful to save a few bucks on this relatively expensive paint remover.

Which is the best formulation of Peel Away to try on fireplace brick, or does it not matter?

Dawn, Peel Away 1 worked great on my bricks. Peel Away 1 is less expensive than some of the other formulas but it will chemically blacken wood. Be sure to mask carefully with plastic any adjacent wood surfaces you intend to finish with stain/varnish. Alternatively, I think Peel Away 7 would work on brick and it is safe to use on wood that will be finished with stain and varnish.
