    Apparently only oven cleaner I find is these all purpose cleaners, will just buy a small can of coating/paint stripper.

    Does it ship to NZ? Citri-Strip or Coating remover?
    I have this feeling that the coating remover can do the job.

    IDK about shipping but the can pictured is the can I have. No terrible fumes either, smells good. I literally sprayed it on waited about 30 mins and wiped it off, went over the hard to reach areas and gave them a normal bath

    Also it was probably 90 degrees F outside with about 85% humidity

    BBM the most economical stripper from Bunnings is Diggers 500ml at NZ$15.58, this is the one I use, the Polystripper at $17+ for 250ml is not much different in formulation and works no better. It suprises me that you cannot get a spray on oven cleaner from the supermarket.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Dunno, you should try it and see, somethings work, some don't, I would stick to a commercial stripper like Diggers, you cant go wrong. I have been using this type of stripper for 50 years, use outside, do not breath too much of the fumes and do not get it on your skin, it burns, use rubber or disposable plastic gloves, wash off with boiling water. I use this method on all the horns I have stripped, reminds me I have an Olds Recording I must do.

    Regards, stuart.
