Hi I'm new to the forum, I purchased a home 2 years ago, the previous owners painted the window sills and frames, along with closet door frames, I could just repaint, but it has a few layers of paintand its chipping and would rather just remove it, Its probably going to be a big job, but still interested in some NON Toxic way to remove the paint, Fumes from chemicals tend to give me a headache, so I would rather not use them if I can get away with it, not sure how to go about this. Can you help??? Any Ideas would be helpful, even if its chemicals, I will just have to wait till Spring. The doors are a light wood, and so I am sure the windows and frames are similar, but was popular at one time to paint these things, Bad Idea I think, I also have trouble opening them and when paint wears off it looks terrible, but It is a quick fixer upper.... Please help.

It is often cheaper and easier to simply remove the existing moldings and replace them than to strip the paint.
