I have noticed all strippers say to only apply stripper brushing in one direction. Not back and forth? Why is this and how does this help?

 The idea behind over brushing is that once you’ve applied a nice thick coat of stripper over the finish, its best to leave it alone so the wax can rise to the surface. This creates a kind of blanket and that wax blanket prevents the chemicals from evaporating. That is the theory….

Brushing back and forth a time or two wont hurt anything if you don’t overdue it.  I do it all the time.
