Cleaning up after stripper

No, not that kind of stripper.
I'm talking about paint stripper and how to remove residue before sanding and paint. Is soap and water sufficient or do I need to use a stronger solvent?

I am using peel away in my cockpit.

Re: Cleaning up after stripper

Which Peel Away? They make many versions. The instructions with peel away should state how to clean up. They are also available online.

Re: Cleaning up after stripper

Even if it's a soy based solvent, you want to keep it out of the waters. Recommend removing as much as possible with rags or tissues, and treat it as hazardous waste. Then follow the instructions. Generally though, I've found hot water to be as good as anything. Again, I use a rag soaked in hot water then it gets treated as trash.

Re: Cleaning up after stripper

Ya it is nasty stuff (so called 'environmentally safe'), I got some on my elbow and didn't realize it until I noticed a burning sensation a few minutes later. I will treat it as hazmat and dispose of properly, fortunately my boat is very far from water now.

The jug I have has been sitting in the basement for a few years and the label had worn off so I couldn't really see cleanup procedure.

Re: Cleaning up after stripper

The instructions for the stripper I used, tells you to use rags soaked in hot water, then to treat the rags AND bucket of hot water as hazmat! It makes no mention of what you do with the bucket of water/methylene chloride, though!

That's one image.

I am REALLY tempted to change the subject of this thread! It keeps staring at me every time I refresh my posts.

Sorry, my sense of humor is lacking in taste.

No biggie. I think it's more my imagination lacking in taste.

Re: Cleaning up after stripper

If you let it collect and dry out in the sun the water in it will go away and leave some fairly benign waste


Its certainly no worse than bottom paint scrapings

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
