Paper is gone, under paper is gone, walls are washed, but still sticky. Any non toxic ideas? Used Vinegar, dawn, wallpaper remover mixed in water. Still sticky walls.

    ok. Don’t paint yet until the surface is clean. Just don’t. Letitdry really good and use a block sander on the walls, vacuum it and clean w tsp cleaner. Rinse. Let it dry. Don’t rush it. Or you will regret it. Keep cleaning until it’s smooth. The vinegar wTer solution is enough...it softens the glue up. I then used a plastic spachula to remove excess...dry it...block sand, vacuum, and clean tsp.

    Use a large sponge brush, to get the glue off. Use very warm water,. If the sponge don't work get a soft brush.

    Have you tried liquid fabric softener? Mix with some water and put in a spray bottle. Spray it on, let set a few minutes, and then wipe off with a rough towel or course sponge in a circle motion. I've had success with this on old wallpaper.

    I used wall paper remover from Hope Depot, a brush and a sponge. Spray the remover, let sit for a few minutes, brush, sponge, clean sponge in water, sponge again if needed.
    Worked for me.

    Mix hot water with liquid fabric softener. It softens the glue for easy removal. REALLY!
