100% Butyl Cellosolve- Boosts Wood Strippers to remove water based stains and paints. Our go to Booster for those tough jobs with water based coatings that a regular stripper won't remove. 


Wood Strippers when removing water based stains like Behr, Olympic or Superdeck


  • Add Butyl Boost to your already made wood stripper.  Use up to 10% Butyl Boost in your stripper or 1/2 gallon Butyl Booster per five gallon stripper mix.


  • Strippers must be kept wet or they will not work, a light mist every few minutes will do.
  • Test on a small, inconspicuous area of the wood to ensure proper wood care.
  • Always wet plants, shrubs, and other surrounding vegetation before and after use.

Extreme caution should be taken when using strippers. They will burn skin, remove paint from houses, and kill plants, grass and pets.

Application Method

REAL APPLICATION. Easy-to-Use & Clean-Up.

Read all application instructions prior to using EXPERT®™ Clean & Bright Stripper Booster.

  1. Always wear heavy-duty rubber gloves when working with EXPERT Clean & Bright Stripper Booster, or other EXPERT Clean & Bright products.
  1. Mix one part Stripper Booster with 3 parts Wood Stripper solution (already mixed).
  1. Use a pump sprayer or car wash brush to apply wood stripper product.
  1. Lightly dampen (without over-saturating) surfaces to be stripped to avoid excessive grain-rise.
  1. Apply a generous, uniform coat of stripper product using a car wash brush or pump sprayer. On vertical surfaces, apply product from the bottom up to avoid streaking. Avoid application in direct sunlight.
  1. Allow time for EXPERT Clean & Bright Wood Stripper and Stripper Booster mix to dissolve coating for 10 to 30 minutes. Mist with water if drying occurs. Test readiness by scrubbing a small area.
  1. When finish begins to lift from wood surface, agitate if necessary, using a stiff bristled brush in the same direction of wood grain.
  1. Use a garden hose at highest pressure, or a pressure washer with 1500-2500 psi to clean surface. Using a pressure washer will eliminate the need for scrubbing. Always clean or scrub in the direction of wood grain.
  1. If stubborn areas remain, repeat the application in those areas.
  1. To neutralize and brighten wood, use EXPERT Clean & Bright’s STEP 3 Wood Brightener immediately, while wood is still wet. Let Wood Brightener sit for 5 to 15 minutes. Any Stripper not neutralized, or thoroughly rinsed will cause poor stain adhesion.
  1. After EXPERT’s Wood Brightener is applied, rinse all wood surfaces for 20 to 30 minutes.

IMPORTANT: Make sure all soap suds are full rinsed off to avoid any reaction during the wood staining process.

  1. Allow wood surface to dry 2 to 4 hours (or longer) before applying EXPERT Stain & Seal wood stains.

I mix it with my sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide to boost the concrete cleaner.

Wood stripper booster

I used this with another product and they worked hand in hand. Had great results. I wouldn’t use it no other way.
