Hello,
My home already had 4 or 5 layers of paint on them when we moved in..Can anyone tell me if it can be removed?? How to go about it and would there be any sanding involved??Thanks Suzi

Buy paint remover and use it. You might need to sand in creavices, as well as to smooth out the grain if it is raised by the remover. You also might need to sand out some of the first layer of paint if it became imbedded in the grain of the wood when the cabinets were first painted. But any amount of paint can be removed by chemical paint removers. I have found that the environmentally-friendly "citrus" removers do not work well, at all. Use the toxic chemicals; they work better and will only linger for a day or two. It just might take more than one application if you want to remove many coats.

There is no neeed to use a harsh stripper for your project. PEEL AWAY 7 is safe and it will do the removal in one application keeping the natural color of the wood
