Question

Can I remove lead paint myself with a stripper if I
keep sanding to an absolute minimum? I have a porch
with seriously peeling lead paint everywhere.

It being outside is a plus, I have a list of websites on the subject, check them out to better prepare yourself.

try peel-away

I've not tried it myself, but I've heard Peel-Away can be used. Follow the instructions.

Remove lead paint

Suggest you use PEEL AWAY I. It will do the removal in a single application and the systemn is always keeping the paint in a wet or damp strate so there is no airborne lead dust and it is safe to do.

I am not sure if Peel Away does (I don't think so) but be sure and read the label for methylene chloride, and do not use strippers that contain it for stripping lead paint.

PEEL AWAY/Methylene chloride

PEEL AWAY I does NOT contain methylene chloride. I would never recommend M/C to a doityourselfer since there are many other safe products that can do the work whethere it is indoors or out.
