I sanded down and left on overnight as recommended. As I tried to remove it I was covered in clouds of white dust so had to go and put on a face mask and goggles. In the end hardly any paint had come off and I had to spend ages clearing up the mess. Hours of my time wasted for a porduct which does not do as it says on the tin. Safety instructions inadequate - it says you only need a mask if dry sanding. (read more)

tired of using a heat gun to strip paint from wood, i thought of trying alternative means, i was a bit dubious about using the polycell less mess product after reading the less than flattering reviews.
so i tried two production, ppolycell less mess and a gel based one by another manufacturer.
the gel based product was a bit of a nightmare, and to be honest was rubbish, but the polycell less mess product was fantastic, to be honest i left the test patch on for maybe 4 hours, and the paint... (read more)

I am awarding this dreadful product zero out of five (the site made me put a star on) on the grounds that it simply does not work. Words fail me, pretty much every promise on the packaging is untrue and it generates a huge amount of mess just getting your wood back to square 1.
Dreadful product, if there is any justice it will be withdrawn from the market, or Polycell will get caught by Trading Standards. Either would be a satisfactory result. (read more)

Awful. Followed your instructions carefully and was excited to use this product but it turned out more diaster.
It formed very hard - difficult to remove - no crusts there. Will have to sand it down or use wire brush.
This product is not worth buying. (read more)

After trying numerous other products I purchased this item expecting good results and 'less mess'.I followed the instructions as per the tub only to find that the paintwork it had worked its apparent magic on had to be scraped of leaving a total mess to be cleaned up.The majority of paint remained as if untouched apart from some slight blistering.A complete waste of money and a lost customer for Polycell products in future.

this Polycell Less Mess Paint Stripper caused more mess than it was worth. it did not come off easily with brushing as advertised and ended up causing more work as it needed sanding and scraping and eventually the use of a different stipper to remove paint and polycell stripper. Also proved expensive. Would never use again. (read more)

We followed the instructions carefully and it was a disaster! the paint remover would not come off[says it will brush off with stiff brush] it would have been quicker to have sanded the paint off, it took all day to remove stripper from table legs and there is still some lurking in difficult places! will not be buying polycell less mess paint stripper again!
