Choose the piece that you'd like to strip the varnish off of.
Move the piece to an area where the vanish remover won't damage the surface underneath.
Gather your supplies:
-taller kitchen gloves
-0000 steel wool
-small disposable container (I used a sour cream plastic container)
-old toothbrush that you will throw out
Layer the smaller gloves under the taller kitchen gloves. The chemicals can eat through them so you want to be sure you're being careful to keep an eye on the gloves as you work.
You don't want to get any of the chemicals on you skin! I would wear a mask if you are working indoors, eye protection is always a good idea.
I began removing the varnish in place in the bathroom (we are replacing the tiles so I wasn't worried about damaging them) but moved the vanity outside to finish the work so that I could work more easily and reach each surface.
The varnish remover is easiest to work with when the surface you're working on is horizontal, being able to maneuver the piece will help immensely.
