    Use a paper tiger wallpaper cutter to score the paper. Then spray with a mixture of fabric softener and water. Let stand approximately 15 minutes, then scrape off. The fabric softener also takes off the glue and makes the job easy peasy.

    Hi there, I have a scoring tool that they make for wallpaper. I use it and then spray it down with warm water, let it sit for about 5 minutes, then use a scraper. Repeat where necessary.

    Hello. I use a product called diff, and also a wall paper scorer. First cover the floors, wallpaper removal is very messy. Then score the wallpaper. The I work in smaller sections putting the Diff on so it doesn't dry fast. Then use a scrap and start scrapping off. You may need to apply more Diff. Once it is all off I use a bucket of warm water and wipe the walls down making sure I have removed all of the glue.

    Taking down wallpaper is a chore for sure. The product diff and scoring does help the process along. I also recommend a great podcast or book on audio to pass the time.
