Does not wash off, didn't work as expected
Comments about Citra Solv Natural Citrus Cleaner:
I purchased this product to clean my studio. I expected it to remove paint but it did not work much better than dish soap and warm water. The smell is incredibly strong and unpleasant. It took some paint off but it left behind a thick residue that I can't remove.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent for Cleaning Paint Brushes
from Bear, DE
Purchased this product as an alternative to odorless thinner. It does a great job of removing oil paint from brushes. I had an old brush where oil paint had dried on it, I left the brush in the CitraSolv cleaner (full strength) for almost an hour. The paint came right off and now I can use the brush again.
Arty Citra Solv
By Klara June
from Lemoore, CA
I bought this to use in an art project based on a post I saw on Pinterest. Spray Citra Solv on National Geographic magazine pages (pre 2000), wait about 5-10 mintues, and the text slides off the page and the colors start blending. Use a tray because it's messy but the results are stunning! Smells great and doesn't harm your hands. And then, of course, I have this great cleaner on hand for all my cleaning and degreasing jobs too! And Blick's has great pricing and fast service too. hARD TO BEAT!
Orderd did not expect a big bottle. Very happy with product.
Best solvent for oil paint
from Wichita, KS
Best solvent to use for oil painting and brush cleaning. Students can use this without the odor of other chemicals associated with oil painting.
natural and smells wonderful and works!
from san jose
clean up with no muss or fuss and terrible fumes that make us ill
Works well, but SMELLS so STRONG!
By Salty Cat
My whole studio reeked of this stuff for hours and hours after I used it. It works nicely for removing the top layers off of magazine pages, which is what I use it for, allowing a nice surface for drawing/painting over. If only it came unscented it would be perfect.

Citra solv for art
By Lucy Lu
from Carlotta, CA
This is the second time I have purchased citrasolv for using on National Geographic magazine pages. Citrasolv does wonderous things to these magazine pages, the most beautiful abstract designs yet subtle enough that you can do a landscape painting on them. You can develop your composition based on what you are seeing in your processed pages because no two are alike.By the way this stuff works great cleaning around the house too. Especially chrome faucets for your sinks in kitchen and bathroom, makes them look brand new. My husband was going to buy complete new sets, but when he saw how new the ones I cleaned with citrasolv came out he said we are saving so much money I'm holding off on buying new ones. We saved hundreds of dollars buy cleaning our chrome faucets, they look brand new again.
