Holy crap. There is NO way, EVER, that I would use that technique. Easy Off? is that a joke?
I used to use Easy Off (which is an oven cleaner) to remove anodizing from aluminum (rc cars), thats how powerful it is. And when I did, I used heavy duty rubber gloves. That is very, very, very nasty stuff, and whoever decided to try that on their paint had some huge cajones and/ or an equally large bank account in the event it ate through the paint...
All I know is I would never do it. I'd keep looking for other, safer solutions first.
You're sure its painted on,and not a sticker?
