Removing wallpaper

Removing wallpaper can often be painstaking and messy. Here are handy steps that will teach you how to remove wallpaper in no time. First you will need the following: bucket, scraping tool, wallpaper stripping solvent, paint roller or sponges, cloth, fabric softener and vinegar.

Remove anything that gets in the way on the area where you want to remove the wallpaper.

You can slowly assess on how much solution you should paint to soften the wallpaper for easy stripping.

Strip big pieces of the wallpaper as much as possible. It is best to strip one layer of wallpaper at a time once removing a multiple layer of wallpaper. After stripping the wallpaper, let the wall dry. When removing the wallpaper, the vinyl coating often peels off first. Continue to soak or paint the wallpaper with more solution and strip again.
