just that really. Can anyone please recommend a good paint stripper for internal doors that requires as little elbow grease as possible!

The paint could be anything from 2-70 years old.

Nitro mors!!!

Paint on,scrape off as it blisters

hot air gun and a scraper.

followed by a sander

followed by hand-sanding the mouldings.

Nitromors is useless now they've taken the carcinogens, poisons and skin-removing chemicals out of it.

Thank you. From google results looks like screw fix stuff looks good too. Going to try the lazy option first before I try pigletjohn's proper version.

That sounds exciting! Now to get my small child out of my flat so I can strip some door frames...

klingstrip - marvellous, doesn't burn if you get it on you and relatively mess-free.

Scraping with a hot air gun is actually more pleasant than scraping with chemicals painted on, in my experience. And very satisfying!
