    Chemical free paint remover from hardware in the slow cooker. Just add your hardware and cover with water before bed. Turn your cooker on high heat and the hot water will soften the paint and peel it away in one big layer. Think of it as like taking off a rubber glove. It's really that easy.

    Remove paint from hardware with slow cooker. Use an old crock pot - fill with water and set the dial to high. The heat and moisture will soften the paint, and often it will fall off as a single piece. Plan to leave it overnight for best results.
