J.W. etc's Safe Strip is a state of the art remover that is effective on most surfaces such as: wood, marble, concrete, brick, deck paint, fiberglass, metal, cloth, tile, baked enamel, stainless steel, most types of paint or coatings such as vinyl, enamel, varnish, shellac, ink, glue, graffiti, carpet, upholstery, etc. It removes built up residue easily and yet is safe to the skin. There are no cancer causing agents, no methylene chloride, no polluting voc's, no acetone, no phosphates and no harmful caustics. It can remove paint, including latex house paint, from clothing. It will dissolve some plastics but in our experience has been a great cleaner for mylar stencils.
