I think you folks that are stripping lacquer and shellac finishes with Murphys may need to check out this picture. It's supposed to be cut with water lol

Everywhere that I've read or watched videos on restoration or cleaning pipes mentions nothing about cutting it with water. It worked great for what I was trying to achieve.

It definitely did exactly what you wanted it to do and got great results . But some folks aren't anticipating it lifting the finish and need to step on it with water lol

I wouldntg use oil soap on a pipe other than one with a lacquered finish . Even a lacquered pipe , unless its super dirty , should only require a damp cloth to clean it
