Stripping Base (Crown) Molding

Posted by nostalgicfarm (My Page) on

I stripped and stained the trim in another room of our house a few years ago. I am now knee-deep in the same project in another room. The wood I am working with is real wood, and took the stain nicely in the other room with a wood conditioner first.
What is the best way to get the sticky adhesive residue out of the crevices? It seems like I finally came up with a system, but I can't remember what it was. The base 1 * 4 isn't that big of a deal, but the door and particularly the window trim are wearing me out with all the little spaces.

I presume the sticky stuff is stripper & finish. This is what I use. Also rinse off the stripper with acetone first.

thanks, that tool looks like it will do the job.

I use mine regularly. I have a tear-drop shaped insert, too, that is useful for concave curves.
