Arrow Removing Paint

We have an old kitchen table made of pine that was painted white. We have removed most of the paint using paint remover and a heat gun. But there is some white paint remaining in the wood grain. I do not want to sand the table but need to removing the remaining paint residue so we can stain the table in a natural wood color. Can anyone give me recommendations? Thanks to all.

Why don't you want to sand?? I hate to sand but it is a neccessary step in any refinish [or new] job. I would sand it then wipe it down with paint thinner.

Using a brass or plastic bristled stripping brush, scrub the remaining paint out of the wood grain with additional paint stripper. You can scrub one step finer with a scotchbrite pad.

Hope this helps.
