    The easiest thing I ever did to strip kitchen cabinets, believe it or not was to take them out side, spray oven cleaner on them real heavy . When it bubbled up I used a water hose and was able to wash off 95% of all old paint. I let them sit in the sun and they completely dried in about an hour, I used the oven cleaner the second time to remove any remaining paint. Totally paint free. Stained and reused in laundry room.

    I got a heat gun from Santa this year and have been a little fearful of trying it out. Definitely going to pull that bad boy out and get to work! Thanks for the tips!
