low order mineral spirits vs. 100% mineral spirits
I have this fireplace that the previous owners painted (over paint, over paint, you get the picture). I began stripping all the paint off with the citrus orange stuff which seems to be working pretty good but it now looks orange. I plan to use the mineral spirits to "clean" the wood and get any access paint off prior to sanding. My boyfriend has very sensitive nostrils and so I wanted to spare him the agony of the 100% full aroma.
My question is since I have never done anything like this before is:
1) Am I on the right track?
2) Can I use the Low order and get the same results?
I plan to stain to a mahogany color.
Thanks for your advice
