The genius who built our house put wallpaper on bare drywall, and removing it is a serious pain. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it easily?
Lou Manfredini, Ace Hardware’s home expert, had this to share: “It’s all about moisture and scraping. First use a tool like Zinsser’s Paper Tiger ($11, AceHardware.com) to score the paper. Then spray on a solution of wallpaper stripper and let soak for 10 minutes; respray. The goal is to get the solution to soak through the paper to reach the drywall and the glue that’s holding everything in place. Once it’s saturated, use a thin scraping knife to gently remove the paper.”
