stripping grips

being an amateur wood worker I should just go to my reference library and look it up, but what the hay. I've got a belly full of stake and taters and I'm being lazy

I don't care to much for the gloss varnish on these wood grips on my pistols.
I prefer the stained and oiled look.
So, the question is:

What have you guys found to be your best way to strip the varnish.

Chaz12 said he used acetone and I remembered that his grips looked great!

Here is that thread....

I've successfully used Crown Tuff-Strip found at Lowe's. It's a spray on that works in just a few minutes leaving bare wood ready for smoothing and oil.
