    A mixture of 1 cup fabric softener and warm water in a spray bottle sprayed on the wall will basically "melt" the glue. Then you can wipe away. I've heard other people use vinegar but I've never done it.

    You can wipe down the walls using a microfiber cloth and warm sudsy water made with blue Dawn to remove residue.

    You can use fabric softener and a scraper like this:

    I use a scraper when removing wallpaper.....then if all else fails I use a sander when its dry.... sometimes people doing their own wallpaper jobs use some weird sh*t. I had one job where someone used concrete to put a border up.
