The modern stuff is no good. I use a combo of Nitromors and white spirit.

If you have any paint thinners this is super stuff lifting paint. Also Ive had success with caustic soda and boiling water (be super carefully as this is kinda dangerous).
But unless you know someone in the painting trade you might struggle to get something until the restrictions are lifted.

I have also bought a large compressor and a soda blasting gun but it's in the shed-it will break cover next week when I've run out of the house chores
