Asked on Apr 4, 2012
I decided on a whim to refinish the inside of my front door as the previous owner did a very poor paint job...
hair and drips included. I managed to strip pretty much all of the paint (and I did test for lead) with citristrip. I *think* the door is oak, if that makes a difference, give the grain. There seems to be a layer of stain remaining that's not too thick, but the citristrip doesn't seem to be that effective in removing it. I would prefer not to remove the door from its hinges, and hence sand, until I absolutely have to. Is there a product I could use indoors that will remove the stain? Not sure what the stain is but I assume it's oil-based. I'd like to stain with Gen. Finishes water based espresso if I can.
