i like Bix spray
but thats just a personal preference

aircraft remover in an aresol is good if you just have something small
(but if you have something large you'll need multiple cans)

zip strip, it will eat through a thick plastic cup. you need to put it in a metal can. its really thick so it wont drip off, put it in a plastic can and use a paint brush to put it on. you can get it at home depot and its reallllllllllllllllllllllllllll strong.

jsut let it sit on the thing for 30 min or so, the foam should start to turn the color of the paint, then get a scrub brush to scrub it lose then rinse it with water, if needed repeat
