I'm stripping back the paint on a door frame and it's going slowly. I've been using Paint Panther (from Foolstation) and it's working in places. Other's it's hardly making a dent. The hardest areas seem to be the ones that have been baked in a hot porch.

Does anyone have any go to products they swear by?

Peel away works better than most. https://www.peelaway.co.uk/

Depends on the original paint/s used as to which to use.

Hot air gun (oil based paints back then) + sanding is how I stripped my house ... but you need to know the surface on which the hot paint falls will not get damaged.

I had my fill of hot air gun stripping back in the 80s and swore never again :lol:

Hot air made it much easier painting skirting boards as the carpet had less pile when I finished stripping :huray:

After using more panther I found the woodwork actually has some nice profiling to it that has disappeared under the layers. To save gashing it with a scraper, I've ordered a tub of Peel Away to play with.
