Well, since we're on the topic anyhow, think it'll get the rest of the paint off? The suggestion from the Home Depot employee was to re-paint... the etching was suggested as a 'primer' before repainting. But I was kind of hoping it would just take the horrible paint off. I stand to benefit... this is something I sometimes do for a living (when certain friends need the help), and she will certainly be paying me once the house is sold!
