Enviromose Paint Stripper Review

Let’s talk about strippers!!! In fact, here is my Enviromose Paint Stripper review.

Enviromose is an environmentally friendly, water-based gel paint stripper. The difference between this product and a lot of the alternatives is there aren’t as many harmful chemicals in this option. I buy mine online from Amazon. Click here to see the latest prices.

You can use Enviromose on basically any paint or varnish. Simply apply a thick layer of the jell, leave for a period, then come back and strip with a scraper. A good tip is to not allow the jell to dry, otherwise you’ll end up starting again.

It’s has been years since I’ve used any paint strippers, but as a professional decorator, I needed to use one on this project.

I would have used Nitromorse, but it changed it formulation back in 2011 making it useless compared to how it used to be. Most paint strippers are the same to be honest.

I bought a bottle of Enviromose and to be honest I didn’t hold out much hope of it actually working, I was wrong!

10 minutes after applying it, it was working well, and after a few hours the paint was literally falling off. Unbelievable considering it is the environmentally friendly option.

So, if you’re looking for a good paint stripper then I would grab a bottle of Enviromose 👍

Editor's Rating:


  • It actually works!
  • environmentally friendly.
  • Works on both water- and oil-based paints.


  • It doesn’t work as well as paint strippers used to work.

What do Other Decorators Think?

If you cover it with tin foil or plastic then the Enviromose will work even better. They told me that it is the fumes that do the work so trap them in and don’t let them escape. The guy who owns this firm is (was?) one of the technical guys on the Euro committee when they changed the regulations so he knows his stuff.

Use the new spray on one it’s the dogs danglies. A really good paint stripper.

Brilliant stuff. Used on 75 windows inside and out. It did the job and was safe against the gloss.

Paint strippers, have diminished in quality over the years. I put this down to ever tightening regulations on the chemical a manufacturer is allowed to use. The whole industry is becoming more environmentally friendly, which it needs to.

Enviromose Paint Stripper is different. As far as I know, it is the first completely safe product of its type. An environmentally friendly product that works better than the paint strippers of days-gone-by.

As a decorator, I don’t use paint strippers too often, but this is definitely the best I’ve come across.
