I have a counter top that I got that someone has repainted and finished. I saw the potential of this and got it free and want to bring it back to its orginal beauty. How can I take this off

    That depends entirely on what sort of material the countertop is. I've never tried paint remover on Formica but I wouldn't bet on the laminate to hold up. Share with us the type of countertop and we may be able to help.

    It’s a Formica counter top the original is beautiful and has been redone with a black surface paint like and sealed it. On the edges u can take a knife and scrape it off where it’s not thick . Thanks

    Citistrip will likely work! Can't recommend that product enough!
