I was washing down my woods stairs, and I started on the banister, I was rubbing pretty hard, and the top layer of dark finish starting coming off, if was gumming. It revealed a layer of paint ( I don't think its stain) the best description I can give of the color is pencil yellow. I got a low abrasive scotch brite pad and it revealed the wood underneath!! I was so excited to see it! This is what I wanted anyway. So my question is, how can I continue to removed the paint and stain, will a stripper hurt the wood because it is beautiful. It took me a half hour to reveal a small spot of wood.
And if you are wondering what ate through it, it was Murphy's oil soap.
