posted on by

In our twenty-first century world, where everyone is much more aware of the environment and the importance of protecting it, people are more and more often looking for "green" ways of doing things.

When it comes to refinishing, a product called SOY-Gel™ is rapidly becoming the stripper of choice. This soy bean-based product is safer to work with and safer for the environment than harsh chemical strippers. It's non-toxic, non-caustic and biodegradable!

Our customers are raving about SOY-Gel™. I'll let you hear it straight from their reviews:

  • Soy Gel is awesome. It... saved me a lot of time, money and sandpaper.... I was amazed how quickly this product worked.... The surface cleaned off easily with just water and a damp white rag. It has very low odor and was extremely easy to use. Thanks for a great product. It made my life easier. -David, from Rockford, IL
  • I was initially drawn to this product as it's made from a natural and renewable source and doesn't have the same dangers and cautions as other strippers - the fact that it's safe for use on lead paints too as the gel encapsulates the lead particles is most impressive and the ease of use and performance is amazing! -Rachel from Rawley, MA
  • It worked beyond my expectations. -Adam from Hickory, NC
  • The stripper adhered to vertical surfaces without running, stayed active for hours and was easily scraped away using only old credit cards. I was not able to smell it. I didn't sting my skin. I recommend this product without reservations. -Al from Los Angeles, CA
  • Best paint stripper I've used... it does all the work for me. I highly recommend. -Tom from Savannah, GA
  • Perfect for stripping paint... in the winter when you can't ventilate the house. -Karen from New York, NY

    I've used this product for years. It is an outstanding aid to us in the refinishing process of older furniture and doors.
    Just brush it on leave it for a while, and come back with water and a brush or a green scrubby and the work is so easy.

    I saw this in the catalog just before the blog posting and wondered how good it worked. As a farmer's son I'm drawn to products made from soybeans and other grains instead of petroleum.

    I used this paint stripper on road paint used by utility companies from their service markers painted during construction. It worked great after pressure washing the residue.

    Hi, thanks for the post. And I watched a related video at Shows how to remove paint and sealers from concrete surfaces with soy gel. Works on stamped and acid stained concrete. Safe and environmentally friendly paint stripper, made from soybeans.

    Hi Rebecca--
    Thanks for the tip on the video! We're adding it to our SOY-Gel offer. It helps to actually see the product in action.

    When the utility company comes to mark your street prior to fixing your plumbing, they look for their stuff and mark it with paint. When asked about the paint they say "Don't worry about it. It washes off in the rain." Well it didn't. Put some of this soy based paint stripper on the street, wait a while, then hit it with a pressure washer and it's a clean street. I became a hit with my neighbors when I removed other long-lasting utility paint on my street.
