Wish I had read this review site before wasting £10 of my hard earned cash. This product does not work 'pure and simple' and as for the less mess I don't think it could have left more mess.
I am normally too lazy to post critisim of products but in this case after a wasted afternoon I feel I am left with no choice.

Absolute rubbish, should be done under trades descriptions act.
Takes ages to apply as it is very very thick. Pot dries out during application becomes even harder to apply!
You get very little coverage - 1 small pot did about 2 square metres, they very conveniently dont write on the packaging the coverage!!
I used it on a wooden worksurface to remove a thin layer of varnish that was peeling in places.
Left it overnight to dry to a crust. It does not flake off easily as stated! Found it... (read more)

Dreadful product. Used it for a relatively simple stripping job and found it performed nowhere near to what it promised. It formed a hard crust over the wood, which then took ages to strip off, creating loads of mess. At the end of it all the paint was still on the wood and I had to resort to heat gun, wire wool and sandpaper. A complete waste of time and money. DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH! (read more)

Absolute rubbish. DO NOT BUY!!!
We applied according to instructions. The stripper formed a hard crust and then had to be scraped off- a huge amount of work and lots of mess. At the end of which had it taken off the 16 coats of paint it claims to be able to? No- it took off one coat and was less effective than a heat gun and sander. Polycell should be done under the Trade Descriptions Act. An easy job too three times as long and cost us a lot more money that it should've. (read more)

I have just used the polycell less mess for my hall stairs and landing. I bought 2 tubs and thought I'll just use a bit of one pot to test it. I applied this product in various thicknesses then scraped sections of these various thickness stripper to see what is best to do. I scraped them after 4 hours, after 6 hours and also after leaving on overnight, in fact my stairs are still covered in this product which has dried even more the longer you leave it. It doesn't burn your hand if you get... (read more)
