How do I remove paint from a child’s desk?

The answer to the question – How do I remove paint from a child’s desk? – has to be in finding the right paint removal product that is safe and effective. The safety pre-requisite must rate as the prime criteria for selecting a solution that is harmless and does not produce toxic vapours or fumes that could prove dangerous. The next big criteria has to be its efficiency in dissolving the paint quickly into a peel away residue that is easily scraped off the paint surface to leave a clean paint ready base that will receive a new smooth coat of paint. If we look at the traditional methods of removing paint none of them are completely safe and many have technical deficiencies which makes them time consuming, laborious and uneconomic solutions. When dealing with a child’s desk you have to ensure that the whole paint removal process is totally non toxic, so choosing the right product is paramount. The only point of reference you can work from is the selection of paint removal products at your disposal. Traditionally, the main methods of Heat Treatment, Solvent deployment and Mechanical use, all present their own individual technical issues but none are safe so that presents an immediate problem. Heat Treatment can cause material scorching or burning with resulting unhealthy fumes or smoke. Solvents are harsh and can damage the material surface as well as producing undesirable vapours that can be toxic. Mechanical methods, including manual and electric sanders, produces dust that irritates the eyes and respiratory system and proves to be a labour intensive process. That leaves us in a quandary as to what product to choose to remove the paint from the child’s desk.
