Acetone on Cabinets

Dee Burks asked 10 years ago

Can I use acetone (fingernail polish remover) to strip my kitchen cabinets without affecting the wood in any way. I have done a spot and it removes the pickled finish perfectly.

This will be fine. The acetone won't hurt the wood as long as the wood isn't kept saturated, this will dissolve wood glue that might be used in the cabinet construction. The main problems you will have is the smell, very strong, and the flammability. Use acetone and all solvents carefully.
