The Stripper’s Manual
(all words from a B & Q leaflet on paint stripping)

keep cool
don’t work in hot weather
as layers need to be removed

it needs skill so don’t do it
out of doors when windy

remove all charred spots
and flammable items

set fire to birds’ nests
keep water buckets handy

just in case
and wear gloves

it’s smelly
and sticky
