You need washing sods, water, quicklime, vinegar, a paintbrush, a stiff brush, a hose, water and some strips of cloth that can be discarded.
Boil 500 milliliters of water and dissolve 250 milliliters of washing soda in it. Carefully add 250 milliliters of quicklime in your solution. Do not put your bare hands in the mixture, as quicklime can be potent. The mixture will form a thin paste.
Let the mixture cool down completely. Dip a paintbrush in the solution, and apply two coats of it to the surface that is to be stripped. Wait for the solution to harden.
After several hours, scrub off the old paint and the stripping mixture with a stiff brush. Hose it down with water. Neutralize the surface with equal parts water and vinegar.
