Liquid Sandpaper

A fast, easy and non-messy alternative to sanding, Klean-Strip® Liquid Sandpaper is an effective way to prepare surfaces for painting and increase the adhesion of new finishes to old. The water-based, biodegradable formula works on paint, varnish, enamel and stain and is great when you are redoing kitchen cabinets, wood moldings and door facings.

  1. Wear chemical splash goggles. Shake well. Use full strength to saturate a coarse, lint-free cloth and rub surface in a circular motion. Fold and re-saturate cloth frequently to prevent re-depositing of soils. Kitchens and areas with heavy grease or wax build-up may require cleaning with TSP or a TSP substitute prior to using liquid sander.
  2. Apply new coating anytime after surface is dry (about 10 minutes).

IMPORTANT: Carefully read all cautions and directions before use.

STORAGE: Keep it in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight, at temperatures below 120°. Keep container closed when not in use. Do not reuse this container.

After I’ve applied Klean-Strip® Easy Liquid Sander Deglosser, do I need to rinse it off before painting?

Where can I purchase Klean Strip® Easy Liquid Sander Deglosser?
Check the “Find A Retailer” link at the top right of this page to find a retailer locally. This product is typically sold in the paint section of hardware and home improvement stores.

I’m rubbing Klean Strip® Easy Liquid Sander Deglosser in a circular motion, according to the instructions, but the gloss isn’t coming off of the finish.
This is okay. As long as the product is applied properly, it will micro-etch the surface so that new paint will adhere.
